This was authentic . Everything about it was original, and I can't imagine what it will be like after re-build. As far as I can see outside is going to look the same. Whether inside can be recreated, I don't know. Watch this space!

The station is still under wraps, with renovation work continuing, but a sign on the boards declares that they are on schedule, so hopefully not too long before they reopen.

The Old Royal Station was a listed building - until it had a major fire in 2015. As a listed building it is being faithfully restored to it's former glory and will open soon. The outside will remain the same but the interior will be reconfigured.

This is now closed due to a fire last year. Last time we visited it really was not as good as on previous visits. Food and service was poor. Hope when it reopens, work is in progress it will be much improved.
