The London Waterloo Station is proof that sometimes the largest structures are accidental. When it was first built in the mid-1800s, there was no intention to make it a terminus. It was to remain a throughway of sorts, which allowed the train line to go East toward London.
As such, plans for station expansion were fairly non-existent. That isn’t to say that no new platforms or additions were built there over the years. There were. However, there was no rhyme nor reason to them in the grand scheme of things. As such, new platforms would spring up and eventually became stations-within-the-main-station. For example, Cypress Station, one of these stations-within-the-main-station had its own entrance, booking area and taxi stand.
Eventually, the powers that be decided that this haphazard method of building a station wasn’t the best way to proceed. Between 1900 and 1922, major renovations took place and during that time, the station became a major transportation hub.
Nowadays, it’s the United Kingdom’s largest station, as well as its busiest. Each day, a quarter of a million people pass through here on their way to someplace else.

When you disembark from a train at the London Waterloo Station, you’ve landed in some pretty prime territory. The Waterloo is near just about every cool attraction there is, including London’s most popular paid attraction. However, that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing else worth seeing. On the contrary, the area near the station is one of the city’s coolest spots. It’s unlikely that you’ll get bored when you go exploring the sites near the station.
As usual, we recommend that you make a day of it. Find a coffee shop to have lunch. Take in a gallery. Sightsee each out-of-the-way nook and cranny. And before you start this adventure, check into bag storage in Waterloo Station or nearby so that you can make the most of your adventure.
Anyone who has watched the opening to the BBC drama “Sherlock” has seen the London Eye. It’s that giant Ferris wheel on the water. It’s also the attraction that was mentioned in the opening of this section. Nearly four million people visit here each year, making it the UK’s busiest paid attraction. But this ain’t no county fair Ferris Wheel. Each car is an observation deck that has been built for comfort and to provide riders with great views of London. If there is a view worth seeing in London, you can probably see it from the London Eye. A must-see for visitors to the city, and it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Waterloo Station.
Since you’re probably going to be in the area, anyway, you should also plan on wandering around the South Bank. It’s easy to find. Just look for the Eye. That’s where it is. In fact, it could be argued that if you can only see one place, this it. A trip to the South Bank offers you the chance to visit the Imperial War Museum, to see some sea animals up close at the London Aquarium and to take in some amazing cultural sights. It’s considered London’s cultural heart, so it’s unlikely that you’ll run out of things to do.
Finally, when you get hungry, this is also an excellent place to be. The variety of food you can find in this area of London boggles the mind. Pretty much every cuisine in the world is here. It's a foodie's dream.
