Vauxhall station is one of south London’s major transport hubs, serving London Underground’s Victoria Line, running regular overground services to London Waterloo and playing host to the second busiest bus station in London (after Victoria). Opened in 1848 as ‘Vauxhall Bridge Station’, Vauxhall ran only National Rail services until the London Underground station opened its doors in July 1971. The station was once famed for its regular ‘milk trains’, delivering produce to a major creamery and bottling facility nearby. The loaded trains would travel up from Torrington in Devon, and unload directly to the plant through a pipe running across the road. Today Vauxhall is perhaps best known for being home to the headquarters of the Special Intelligence Service, commonly referred to as MI6 – the building has featured in several James Bond films, including GoldenEye, Die Another Day, and Skyfall. It’s right next to Vauxhall Bridge, will leads over the Thames towards Pimlico and the Tate Britain gallery.
