London Railway Stations Photo Gallery


Paddington

The station was first opened in 1854 and has recently benefited from a major redevelopment. This has included a new customer information system, new platform surfaces and a new shopping, eating and waiting area called "The Lawn".

"The Railway Station" (1862) by Frith illustrates passengers boarding a train at Paddington station. The detailing of Brunel’s roof and Digby Wyatt’s ornamentation is exceptionally clear and has assisted in recent restoration works.

Liverpool Street

Originally completed in 1874, Liverpool Street station benefited from a major redevelopment in the late 1980s. It is the London terminus of the former Great Eastern Railway, originally providing routes to Norwich via Ipswich and Kings Lynn via Cambridge. Today the station has 123 million visitors each year and remains a stunning example of the fusion of modern facilities within the traditional environment.

Waterloo

Waterloo is the UK's largest station, covering an area of 24.5 acres. One of its most notable features is the Victory Arch, built of Portland Stone. This commemorates the London and South Western and the Southern Railway men who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars.
