Edinburgh Waverley station is one of the UK’s largest stations, and the terminus for a wide range of services, including most of the expresses up the East Coast Main Line from London. At 25 acres, it is second in size only to Waterloo, and, with over 14.5 million passengers a year, the fifth busiest outside London.
Although it doesn’t have a facade as such, the ticket hall, with its circular dome is its defining interior feature. Alas, the effect is currently somewhat spoiled by the insertion of a Costa Coffee pagoda underneath the dome, and the incursion of tables for cafes in the space itself: as well as detracting from the architecture, it makes circulation less easy. Still, any traveller should make the effort to take a look.
