One of four railway stations on the British version of Monopoly

Opened in 1874 as a replacement for Bishopsgate station, London Liverpool Street station was designed to integrate with the growing London Underground network. As Britain’s third busiest station, it serves around 64 million passengers every year, providing the starting point for journeys to Cambridgeshire, Essex, Greater London, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

One of four railway stations on the British version of Monopoly, Liverpool Street is a stone’s throw away from iconic London attractions like Exchange Square, Old Spitalfields Market, Sky Garden, Brick Lane and the Tower of London. In addition, the station itself is home to landmarks such as the Great Eastern Railway War Memorial and Kindertransport Arrival Memorial.

Liverpool Street has a reputation as a busy commuter station and has been praised for its radical modernisation whilst preserving the best of its railway heritage.
