London Bridge Station

London Bridge Station

London Bridge Station is the oldest running railway station in Central London. It gets its name from its neighbour, The London Bridge.

The station was first opened to the public as the official station of London on 14th December 1836 on the south side of the river thames, Which makes it London's first ever major train station. The opening of the station as originally planned for 10th October 1836. However a delay in the building of a bridge that connected to the station meant that it was pushed back to the 14th December 1836. At the time the trains only operated as far as the east end of Bermondsey Street bridge, with commuters being forced to walk the last couple hundred yards. Since its first opening the station as changed hands of owners multiple times and has had many re decorations and upgrades. It is currently being completely remodelled and is mainly closed off to the public.
