The station has a small shopping centre, Victoria Place, there are retail outlets to meet most peoples needs. Bars, restaurants, fast food, coffee shops, convenience stores, newsstands, pharmacies, even a bookmakers.
There is a handy left luggage office in the station, but it is not cheap and a small visitor centre. There is a slightly more economical left luggage facility at Victoria Coach Station.
