Tube Stop Tuesday: Charing Cross

Tube Stop Tuesday: Charing Cross

Located on the Bakerloo and Northern line, Charing Cross is a busy station in central London with both underground and overground trains. From here you can easily get to popular places such Oxford Circus, Regents Park, and Waterloo, and you can also catch trains to Kent. There are different entrances/exits to Charing Cross so before you make your way out of the station, pay attention to the signs!

Things to do near Charing Cross station:

  • Admire Trafalgar Square, the most popular tourist spot near Charing Cross. It is a public space featuring monuments, fountains, and often shows and performances. It’s a great place for photos!
  • See the famous monuments that stand by Trafalgar Square, including the Charles I Monument and Nelson’s Column.
  • Visit the National Portrait Gallery, located in Trafalgar Square. It’s a beautiful building which holds over 2,300 paintings from the mid 13th century to the 1900’s. And It’s free to enter!
  • check out St Martin-in-the-fields, a church just opposite Trafalgar Square. Enjoy a concert along with stunning architecture. When I went I enjoyed the afternoon songs. Entry is free.
  • Exit Charing Cross overground train station for several shops and restaurants. Covent Garden is a five minute walk away.
  • Just outside of Charing Cross overground train station you will see Eleanor Cross, a beautifully decorated statue from 1290. It is part of a collection of twelve, however, only three now stand intact.
  • Walk toward the Admiralty Arch and continue along a long road called The Mall, which leads to St James’ Park and Buckingham Palace.
