Charing Cross Station first opened in the mid-19th century, but has been substantially changed over the years. The forecourt is home to the Eleanor Cross, which is considered to be the centre of London.
Charing Cross is a small station, offering views of the Strand from the forecourt, and of the London Eye from the platforms. A modern, high-level walkway straddles the platforms, from which other London landmarks, such as the Gherkin can be viewed. Hungerford Lane, a service road to the side of the station, also forms part of the demise and is available for filming.
Previous projects include: Silent Witness (BBC), London Has Fallen (Babak Najafi, 2016), Skyfall (Sam Mendes, 2012).
