London Bridge Railway StationThe Bridge that gives this station its name was London's original - and the only bridge over the River Thames in central London until 1750 when Westminster Bridge created a crossing. London Bridge Station doesn't date back quite as far as 40AD. Opened in 1836, it's not only the oldest station in London, but also one of the oldest railway stations in the world. It's still handy for travelling to Kent, Sussex and South/Southeast London with trains every 15 minutes between Brighton, Gatwick, Luton and Bedford. The famous London Bridge is Falling Down nursery rhyme refers to the Bridge (back in the days of the Romans, its wood and clay structure wasn't the most upstanding). The station itself gone through several rebuilds: the current station is the result of a large-scale refit in 2012, part of the London Bridge Quarter development, which includes The Shard, a new bus station and a new concourse which will link terminating rail platforms with the bus station outside.
