Best way to kill time at a train station

For the FAO of @laelfy

Nah. Just download a silly game on your phone

This, unless there’s a bookshop to browse.

Put on a high-vis jacket and see how many people you can direct to the wrong trains.

Ooo, go wander around M&S and buy the following -

1 individual victoria sponge cake
1 packet of percy pigs (any variety)
Either a sandwich or some other delicious savoury meal.
A packet of crisps
1 gin and tonic

Then make your way to WH Smith, go buy either a newspaper, a crappy magazine or a good magazine.

THEN make your way to one of the many coffee shops, buy a coffee…

Take your time doing all these, by the time you’ve finished and have a nice warm coffee in hand enter your train and relaaaaaaax.

Play some music from your phone and start dancing and see if it turns into a flashmob.

Go up to children and ask them if they want to go to the moon. If they say yes put them on a train to Wales.

Of which around £850 was on the “special offers” that WH Smith blitz you with at the checkout.

Ahhh too late epimer! I was literally boarding my train as you posted. I did browse the teeny m&s and WHSmiths and bought a ham and cheese toastie. I also had some bants with the French customs guy (he tried to charge me £10 for a stamp on my passport). Didn’t get the full on security experience this time - maybe cause I had a suitcase and not a backpack.

Drinking in the station bar, obviously.
