The station used to be separate stations with the Bakerloo Line being served by Trafalgar Square station and the Northern Line by Strand station. The concourses were linked with subterrean underpasses and walkways and the resulting complex named "Charing Cross" in 1979, when the station also became the southern terminus of the new Jubilee Line. The Jubilee Line platforms were closed in 1999 when that line was extended via Westminster and the south bank to Stratford.
The name "Charing Cross" was previously used by what is now Embankment tube station.
