Station facilities include a book and gift shop, a museum, a refreshment room, ladies' waiting room and power room, general waiting room, gentlemen's toilets and an emporium. The station also plays host to the command centre of the railway from which the Duty Traffic Manager organizes all movements which take place on the railway from the Station Master's Office. In 2009, a £20,000 grant allowed the station to have new toilets and a lift in the entrance hall to be installed for the benefits of the disabled. All the surviving parts of the original station building have been restored to 1950s condition to match the condition of much of the railway itself.

“Marriage is good enough for the lower classes: they have facilities for desertion that are denied to us.”

“Say first, of God above, or Man below,
What can we reason, but from what we know?
Of Man what see we, but his station here,
From which to reason, or to which refer?
Thro worlds unnumberd tho the God be known,
Tis ours to trace him only in our own.
—Alexander Pope (16881744)
