Charing Cross Station, designed by John Hawkshaw and boasting a single 164 foot arch covering six tracks of the South-Eastern Railway, opened for business at the same time as the ornate E.M. Barry Charing Cross Hotel built above it. Along with Kings Cross (opened 1852) and Victoria (1860), Charing Cross remains one of the busiest of London's main-line stations opened in the mid-Victorian period.  (By John Osborne)
