Charing Cross Station was a large, busy railway station located in central London. The station opened in 1864 (on the site of the former Hungerford Market), but did not receive its impressive frontage until the completion of the Charing Cross Hotel at it main entrance a year later. The station is named for Charing Cross, the central London crossroads at which it is located.
In the modern world, the station is London's fifth busiest, primarily servicing Kent. Today Brighton trains generally run to Victoria or London Bridge stations.
