Is This The Most Unwelcoming Station In The UK?

To get to Margate, I’d bought a Senior Off Peak Standard Class Ticket from Stratford International station to Margate.

As I got to the station a few minutes early, I had to wait for nearly twenty minutes on a draughty platform, with only a little sun filtering into the cutting of the station.

To make matters worse, a couple of Eurostar trains thundered through and frightened the daylights out of me!

It certainly isn’t my favourite station and next time I catch a train there, I’ll wait upstairs until the last minute. Or go from St. Pancras!
