Waterloo Station

Category: Train Stations

Waterloo is a major railway station and transport interchange complex in the London Borough of Lambeth.

It is located in the Waterloo district of London and named after the Battle of Waterloo in which Napoleon was defeated near Brussels. Somewhat ironically, it is now London’s gateway for train passengers from France and Belgium. (In 1998, French politician Florent Longuep?e wrote to Tony Blair demanding unsuccessfully that the station be renamed on the grounds that the name is insensitive to French visitors.)
