Top ways to experience London Bridge Station and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.

Absolutely DISGUSTING STAFF!! Day number 1 - How can you shout at customers who are just looking for directions ??
Day number 2 - How can you shout at the customer when their is a problem with the ticket , funny enough the same day travelling back but in the morning ticket was perfect but on the way back your system is saying my weekly ticket is out of date !!! Don’t just shout at people!!! first check / explain or whatever your job description is ! I would rather travel from Victoria station from now on.

I just hope we won’t need customer service staff at the stations very soon because you think it’s ok to be that rude, shout at customers - seriously should not be allowed around people !

Another big train station of London. Crowded but well organized. Interesting architecture. You can find here all you need as a traveler: cafes, fast-foods, restaurants, cafes.

I arrived at 9:05 at the ticket office and went to station number 5 to collect my prepaid ticket to Luton airport. The ticket clerk seemed to be bothered by my request of printing me the prepaid ticket and behaved with superiority shouting twice “you are not listening to me, next time you collect it at the machine” in front of other customers and my friend. We left speechless. I believe his name started with B (but I’m not completely sure as it was not a common name). Generally speaking, I don’t believe this is the way employees at the ticket office should treat people. They’re paid to ASSIST, otherwise it’s difficult for me to understand why they are paid for.

Stinky, filthy, dirty and blocked toilets. Urine, bits of toilet paper on the floor, the hooks on the back of the doors have been removed so there's now nowhere to hang your belongings, some door locks broken. These toilets used to be well maintained. Hang your head in shame Network Rail!

Absolutely terrible for wayfinding.
Departure board didn’t list our train - Coulsdon South. Staff said look for East Croydon, a stop on the way to Coulsdon South. But East Croydon was not listed on the departure board. Staff said go to the Info Office but that was back outside the barriers. Two trains were leaving at 10.30am for Three Bridges and for Hayes. By a process of elimination we worked out that we needed the Three Bridges train and we needed to take a lift back up to the platform. We just got the train with one minute to spare.
A very stressful experience. And we had allowed twenty minutes, which should have been plenty of time to find and board a train.
Not only does the station have a very confusing layout, but the train information is also inadequate or missing.

Terrible toilets, no baby change open, some of the dirtiest, smelliest and unkempt main station toilets I have seen in years. Not recommended.

London Bridge Station is huge, as it serves the Underground and several other England domestic trains. Hubby and I had an early morning Southeastern train to Hever from London. When we arrived at London Bridge, all of the commuters were arriving into London for work. The literal wall of people who were all in a rush coming towards us was daunting. The signs are difficult to navigate, as we quickly realized that Hever was not a destination because it is a stop to Margate. We learned to ask for help after trying to navigate St. Pancras ourselves. The staff was helpful and told us to look for Margate on the boards in a section we would never have found ourselves. The platform was not shown until 5 minutes before departure! 5 minutes to hurry up a long staircase and get onto the train is terrible timing for leisure travel passengers. The train lines need to take tourists and others not familiar with their system into consideration.

I recommend that if you are not familiar with the station to ask for help early and often. Otherwise, it may boil down to having 5 minutes to find your train.

Beware all tourists and anybody in a hurry do not use the ticket machines just inside the entrance.
They have been set to charge upto 35% more than the ticket price sold by the ticket office on the ground floor.easy to find straight down the escalator. When we asked they said it was to catch tourists and people in a hurry!!!!! Beware.

We were trying to get from London Bridge to Euston, and one of the lads in the red jackets showed us how to use our bank cards and save us a fortune. These boys are worth every penny of their salaries; friendly and funny, too.
