London’s first intercity station
London Euston is the sixth busiest railway station in Britain, the southern terminus of the West Coast Mainline and the busiest passenger route in Britain. Serving over 71 million people each year, it’s a gateway from London to popular destinations like Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The original Euston station opened in 1837 but was completely rebuilt in conjunction with the electrification of the West Coast Mainline between 1963 and 1968.
Two Portland stone entrance lodges and the war memorial still survive from the old station and are situated on Euston Road.
