All include insurance coverage for lost or damaged items.
The best thing about Stasher is their pricing, just £6 per bag for the whole day.

Most major train stations, coach stations, and all airports offer left luggage facilities.
These are simple storage spaces that can be rented out on an hourly or daily basis.
Visitors can either pay upon arrival or pay online in advance to save some time.
Hours vary for each left luggage location. However, most are opened between 7 am – 11 pm, so luggage can be dropped off and collected between those hours.
