London Train Stations

 

British Rail LogoI have a funny story about London Train Stations: when I first arrived in London in 1998, I found a fun job at Hamleys of London on Regent Street as Toy Demonstrator. I started selling "Magic Mugs" on the second floor, but it didn't take my boss long to realize my potential as a salesman and within a few days I was on the ground floor selling those aeroplanes that come back to you (and that usually last about 5 minutes before coming apart).

As the main attraction of the ground floor, I got to answer a lot of questions from lost tourists and one day an old woman asked me: "excuse me! where is the train station?" To this question I promptly replied: "second floor along with the train sets". Humour wasn't her thing, so I asked her again which station was she looking for and she said "the main train station". I attempted to explain her that London has several main train stations and she got so upset that she left at once. She simply didn't believe me and she thought I was pulling her legs.

Purely just as a curiosity, London has 357 train stations. This number includes National Rail only and does not include any train station served only by the tube (270 stations), Tramlink (39 stations) and Docklands Light Railway (39 stations).

I think we can comfortably say that London has 9 main train stations and I really mean big ones. In alphabetical order they are:

 

Charing Cross Train Station

Euston Train Station

Kings Cross Train Station

Liverpool Street Train Station

London Bridge Train Station

Paddington Train Station

St. Pancras Train Station

Victoria Train Station

Waterloo Train Station
