Waterloo East station
Waterloo East station
The station was opened by the South Eastern Railway as Waterloo Junction in January 1869. The Southern Railway renamed it Waterloo Eastern in 1935 and it took its present name in May 1977. There was once a rail connection to the main Waterloo station but this saw little service and was closed at the beginning of the 20th century. This view looks down the line from Platform A towards London Bridge station, with the nearly completed Shard at London Bridge in the distance. The lower building to its right is Guy's Hospital Tower. The platforms at Waterloo East are given the letters A to D to avoid confusion with the numbered platforms at the main Waterloo station.
