London Bridge Station is the oldest railway station in central London (Zone 1) and one of the oldest railway stations in the world, having been established in 1836. The station has had an interesting history over the years, with a series of rebuilding projects changing the face of its architecture. The latest upgrade was made in 2018 and included a new concourse plus many additional operational and passenger benefits. Trains to London Bridge afford access to many attractions, including the Tower of London and Southwark Cathedral to the west. The Shard, a 94-storey skyscraper offering fabulous views of the city, is also close by to the south. Besides trains from London Bridge to a variety of destinations, there are multiple bus routes serving the station and connections to the river bus service via London Bridge City Pier.
