A Look At Charing Cross Station

Charing Cross station, is one I don’t use very often for the following reasons.


It is very difficult to get to from where I live near Dalston.

All of the services to and from Charing Cross station, call at London Bridge station, which is a simple bus ride away.

I took these pictures on a visit today.

I think it is one of that group of stations, that can be made more welcoming by improving the public realm outside the station.

Perhaps, the forecourt of Charing Cross station, needs a similar treatment to that given to Kings Cross station.

Surely the station’s Eleanor Cross needs to be better displayed.

I also think, that the whole area would benefit, if a pedestrianised space outside Charing Cross station, were to be linked to the nearby Trafalgar Square.
