About London Charing Cross Railway Station
London Charing Cross Railway Station, is a central London railway terminus in the City of Westminster, England. It is one of 17 stations managed by Network Rail and all regular trains serving it are operated by Southeastern Railways.
Charing Cross is the fifth busiest rail terminal in London and the office and shopping complex above the station is formally known as Embankment Place.
Charing Cross Station takes its name from its location next to the central London road junction of Charing Cross. The front of the station faces the Strand, while at the other end is the northern end of Hungerford Bridge, which is crossed by all trains serving the station.
Ticket barriers control access to all platforms, although the bridge entrance has no barriers and is only open to passengers during the morning peak hours. Charing Cross is the London terminus of the South Eastern Main Line.

Charing Cross is served by two London Underground stations, one at each end: Charing Cross, and Embankment. Charing Cross railway station is within walking distance. Embankment and Charing Cross have an Oyster Out of Station Interchange.
Originally Embankment was called Charing Cross, while the present Charing Cross was Trafalgar Square (Bakerloo line) and Strand (Northern line) stations, combining under the new name when connected by the new Jubilee Line station in 1979. The change of name acknowledged that Strand and Trafalgar Square were closer to the station than Embankment. The Jubilee line platforms are no longer served via Charing Cross following the 1999 extension of the line in which it was diverted to Westminster and onwards south of the river Thames.
