    Hi,

    Are there any stations in the UK with public shower facilities available such as those across Europe?

    London Paddington has (paid) showers available. I'd imagine they get a fair amount of use from passengers arriving from the sleeper in the morning.

    Stations where sleeper or international services start and finish (or once did) will be likely: Paddington as mentioned, plus Euston. Waterloo had them when Eurostar were based there, not sure if they survived. Not sure if any were provided at St. Pancras when everything moved over, nor whether Victoria and Liverpool Street had any for the ferry trains.

    They're not in the station, but there are showers in the Caledonian Sleeper Guest Services Centre across the road from Inverness.

    The Caley Sleeper ones at Inverness are awesome! Very new, clean and tidy, nice towels etc.

    There are some in the station too. Sleeper ones are better but don't open in evening until 18.00.

    There were some good ones at Aberdeen too that I used a few years ago after arriving on the sleeper.

    I've used Fort William's showers twice and recommend them.
    Also up north but not in the station are the showers in Kyle of Lochalsh a short walk away near the car park which are great!
