Every day, thousands of passengers pass through Waterloo en route to London's famous South Bank, taking advantage of the artistic and cultural delights of the South Bank. Passing through Exit 6 of the station, by the International terminal, you're only a six-minute walk away from The Royal Festival Hall, the Hayward Gallery, The National Film Theatre, and The Museum of Moving Image. You can also get straight to Paris, Brussels, Lille, Disneyland Paris and the Alps via the Eurostar.
Victorian remains in London
Did you know that Waterloo Station once had an adjoining bit called London Necropolis railway station? And yes, it does have to do with death. The word 'necropolis' means cemetery, however there wasn't actually a graveyard here. The railway was established in 1854 to transport bodies to a burial ground in Surrey, because of the overcrowding of cemeteries in London. It can also lay claim to having the best natural lighting of any station in the capital, thanks to its glazed roof.
