Charing Cross Station

Category: Train Stations

London Charing Cross station is a central London railway terminus which is unusual in that its train services directly connect to two other railway termini; Waterloo and London Bridge. The station takes its name from the Charing Cross district of London, which itself is named after the twelfth Eleanor cross, which was located south of Trafalgar Square but was taken down by order of Parliament in 1647 as an “idolatrous object” and replaced by a statue of King Charles I.
