Best (architectural) UK bus station.

Best (architectural) UK bus station?

I've NEVER seen a good one, how about you?

Vauxhall is nice.

Manchester Shudehill is acceptable, although how it'll look in 10 years is another matter.

Norwich built a new station a couple of years back. Its not spectacular but is a million times better than its predecessor.

^ Great lighting! Is it lit up like that every night?

Wycombe has recently completed a new bus station, which isn't stunning but is a million times better than the building it replaced, which incidentally featured in an article about Britain's ugliest building on the BBC news site.

I think so yes. The main block is a glass clad multistorey car park so that is def on all night. The bit's at the bottom are bus station (with enclosed passenger waiting bit, and tram station. So they would also be on most of the time.

Knocked down? Shame, it looked really good. Pity they can't do the same with the one here in Coventry.

The new Kirkcaldy bis station is pretty nice. Maybe I'm being biased, though.
I can't find many pictures, though, as it only opened last week or so.
