Charing Cross tube station

Charing Cross tube station of the London Underground serves both the Northern Line and Bakerloo Line networks and provides an interconnect with the national railway network at Charing Cross station.

On the Northern Line is it between Embankment and Leicester Square, and on the Bakerloo Line it is between Embankment and Piccadilly Circus. It is in zone 1.

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.

Trafalgar Square tube station had been opened on March 10, 1906.

The name "Charing Cross" was previously used by what is now Embankment tube station.
