This is a nice station with great facilities, plenty of place to eat and a shopping centre. Went there to catch the Eurostar. Used the luggage lockers and ate in the food court.

What a pleasure taking trains to and from this station. It has a great food and shopping area to make one comfortable while waiting. The ticketing areas are fast and friendly. Local mass transit is right outside. Highly recommended.

The station had a lot of great shops and restaurants. The chocolate shop is worth a visit alone. Reminds me of the underground stations in Japan.
