London Bridge

If you are following our tour of railway stations, we started in the west with Paddington and we are moving clockwise, going to the east and Liverpool Street. Now we have crossed the river and have hit London Bridge and we will head back west.

This is one of the oldest, and busiest stations on the network. You may find that hard to believe as it has recently been completely rebuilt (it took years) and is now huge, modern and a bit confusing.

This station is multi-level. There are two sets of platforms. The low numbers have lines which pass through the station and the high numbered platforms are termination. The lines which pass through the station go towards Waterloo East, Charing Cross, Blackfriars and Cannon Street.

If you are coming into London Bridge, you may have come from somewhere in Kent, perhaps Dover or Folkestone from the ferries. You may have come on the Thameslink from Gatwick or Luton airports, or any cities like Canterbury, Brighton, St Alban’s…

Here’s how to get to central London if you aren’t staying in the area.
