The station has been transformed with this development of retailers. Pretty much all needs are catered for whether it's for a snack or something bigger. There's also souvenir shops for people so inclined and various other good shops.

A nice train station. Clean and tidy. Mostly just small food chains and coffee shops inside. A small market on Wednesday.

Adaptive reuse of a listed Victorian railway station now a covered shopping arcade. Mostly chains stores, but excellent for a snack, meal or cup of tea out of the weather and across from Windsor Castle. Take note. A gift from the Age of Steam.
