Located in central London, in the Westminster district Charing Cross Stations lies east of Trafalgar Square and northeast of Whitehall. Charing Cross station is Britain’s sixth-busiest railway station and the most central one and took its name from the central London crossroads where it was built. The station includes six platforms and first opened in 1864 on the former site of Hungerford Market. Over the years, Charing Cross station also became famous for its Victorian replica of the 13th-century Eleanor Cross, which was erected in front of the station in 1865. Charing Cross railway station also played a crucial role in World War I when it was used as the main departure point for soldiers leaving to fight on the Western Front. In 4 years of war, hundreds of journeys departed from and arrived at Charing Cross Station. Some brought soldiers to their destination, and some brought the injured home. On Boxing Day 1918, King George V and US President Woodrow Wilson famously met at London Charing Cross. Sadly, Charing Cross’s closely intertwined story with wars doesn’t stop there. World war II took a toll on the French renaissance building: on October 8th, 1940, a train was struck by a bomb, and in April 1941, four trains were set on fire, and a parachute mine landed next to platform number four. The railway was so damaged that it took long months to repair and reopen.
