Charing Cross Station was first opened in the mid 19th century, but has been substantially renovated over the years.

The forecourt of the station is the home of the Eleanor Cross, from which road distances to the centre of London are measured.

Charing Cross is a small station, boasting 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 station's demise and is also available for filming.
