Charing Cross

Charing Cross is essentially the centre of London. Close by is the point where all distances are measured.

It’s directly across the river from Waterloo, and has platforms that extend on a bridge part way across the Thames. The bridge is a good way of crossing the river to the south bank on foot and is accessible.

Charing Cross is the end of the line from London Bridge and Waterloo East. It serves Kent, so Dartford, Dover, Canterbury, Folkestone and Hastings. Some of these still have ferry services to the continent.
