Central London train station Charing Cross is located between the Strand and Hungerford Bridge in the City of Westminster. It’s connected to Charing Cross Underground Station, the terminus of the South Eastern main line to Dover, and London’s most central train station.

According to the latest Office of Rail and Road (ORR) statistics, Charing Cross is the 10th-busiest station in the UK, processing 34,645,924 passengers per annum.

The plan for Charing Cross Station was approved by the government in 1859 in order to extend South Eastern Railway’s line from London Bridge over the Thames to a location between Waterloo Bridge and Westminster Bridge. Construction on the station, designed by Sir John Hawkshaw, started in 1862 and finished when it opened in 1864. The stunning station façade was provided by the Charing Cross Hotel, its French Renaissance style being the vision of Edward Middleton Barry. Sir John Hawkshaw also designed the Hungerford Bridge to carry the tracks over the Thames into the station and a pre-existing bridge designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel had to be demolished to make way for it. Most recently, Terry Farrell and Partners completed a major redevelopment of the station in 1990s which used the air space above the platforms to create Embankment Place, a distinctive office complex which has now become a landmark in its own right.
