London Cannon Street – an iconic landmark
Opened in 1866, London Cannon Street connects the south and south east of London with the city, serving as an intermediate station between London Bridge and Charing Cross.
It has an iconic design, conceived by Sir John Hawkshaw and John Wolfe Barry, and is characterised by its two Wren-style towers which still remain today. The building has been through significant redevelopment over the years, and today sees an average of 22 million passengers passing through the station.
