The worst train stations in London

 by Martin Belam, 15 November 2004

Tonight the Evening Standard published a feature on the worst train stations in London, naming North Sheen, Hanwell, Clapham High Street and Maryland. They are asking readers to contact them about the dangers of their local stations by emailing

They didn't forget to mention Wood Street Station in the text - after all like Walthamstow Central it is practically unmanned in the evening, and the CCTV isn't guaranteed to work if you become a victim of a crime there - which sadly led to the death of John Coffey earlier this year.

Old Street Station has to be up there, I counted 10 homeless people sleeping there on last count.
Constantly seeing beggers,drunk behaviour,and a general dirtiness to the whole station.Makes me want to catch the bus every day!
