Waterloo Guide

Your All In London guide to Waterloo

Waterloo refers mainly to Londonís Waterloo Railway Station and the area immediately surrounding the station. Waterloo is a vital thoroughfare for most commuters from the South and is situated conveniently in the London Borough of Lambeth, within Zone 1.

Waterloo was famously named after the Battle of Waterloo; recently, a French politician attempted to demand the renaming of the station as they felt it was unfair on French visitors using the Eurostar terminal!

Today the area surrounding Waterloo is particularly popular with tourists and those looking for convenient housing within close reach of both the city and the mainline services to the south.
