About Charing Cross Station

Charing Cross Station first opened in 1864 and is one of London’s prominent stations for inbound traffic. The terminus sits adjacent to the Charing Cross junction, which is considered the center of London. All distances from London were measured from this busy Westminster intersection. 

The origins of its importance date to the late 13th century when Queen Eleanor’s body was transported back to London during the reign of King Edward I. The king ordered memorial crosses to commemorate her and the last one was Charing Cross. A statue of King Charles I took the place of the cross in the mid-17th century and stands today at Charing Cross. 

Due to its central location along the River Thames, the station quickly became the most important terminus in London. Charing Cross was intended to be the London station for the South Eastern Railway, and boat trains connected riders to nearby passenger ships. 

The Charing Cross Station has faced tremendous challenges over the years, including engineering catastrophes and WWII bombings. However, it has been rebuilt and modernized on numerous occasions to remain one of the busiest railway stations in the United Kingdom.

Attractions and Activities near Charing Cross Station

  • Buckingham Palace: The London residence of The Queen and Royal Family is a 15-minute walk from Charing Cross Station. For centuries, the opulent palace has been the site of national celebrations, and prominent figures from abroad are hosted inside. A group of soldiers guards the entrance, and tourists gather outside the lavish gate to witness the daily Changing of the Guard. 
    Visitors can tour Buckingham Palace during the summer and view the extravagant antiques on display in its magnificent State Rooms, the Grand Staircase, and the beautiful Throne Room. 

  • Palace of Westminster:  15-minute stroll from Charing Cross Station will lead you to the seat of the United Kingdom Parliament. The beautiful Gothic Revival structure is home to the House of Commons and House of Lords and was built along the River Thames to replace the palace destroyed in 1834. 
    The estate has become one of London’s iconic symbols and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 20th century. Big Ben sits atop the Elizabeth Tower, and it was once the largest striking clock in the world. 
    Surviving the Great Fire of 1834, Westminster Hall and St. Stephen’s Chapel are two of the oldest sections of the complex. They’ve each witnessed nearly 1,000 years of British history and played a tremendous impact on the country’s politics and religion.

  • South Bank: Located on the opposite side of the River Thames, the South Bank hosts an abundance of cultural attractions for a day of thrills. The Hungerford Bridge and Golden Jubilee Bridges connect Charing Cross Station to the South Bank, and it only takes around 10-15 minutes to make the trek from the terminus. 
    Although the area slowly developed, the historic 1951 Festival of Britain laid the foundation of the South Bank transitioning to one of London’s beloved tourist zones. The entertainment district would become decorated with concert halls, theaters, gardens, cinemas, and other cultural wonders in the following decades.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
