Charing Cross Station London

Charing Cross Station                                                       Charing Cross Station, London  Charing Cross Station, postcode WC2 5HS, operated by Network Rail.   Charing Cross is in effect a station that allows customers traveling to London Bridge to progress a little bit further into the heart of London and arrive on the North Bank of the Thames. Between the two stations lies Waterloo East so in effect three large London stations are linked in short order.

The station was originally constructed for the South East and Chatham Railway (SECR) which later became the South Eastern Railway. It opened in 1864 with the Charing Cross Hotel itself opening in 1865. In the stations forecourt is the Eleanor Cross _ the point at which all distances to the centre of London are measured.

Charing Cross station is served by two London Underground lines _ the Bakerloo and Northern lines.
