This is a quiet but lovely station. Hasn't been modernised so it has very quaint features and is well kept.

Had to catch a train back to Bristol around 18:30 on a sunday night. Not one member of staff on duty. No lifts. Toilets locked and cafe closed. Very poor when travelling with my elderly mother.

Yes, you can. It's really cheap to park at the Railway Station. There is always plenty of space and it is safe and secure.
