Waterloo Railway StationFor a station that covers nearly 25 acres in total, there's very little space during rush hour as throngs of people desperately try to glimpse the screens and make a beeline for every platform. If you're meeting people here either wear a red rose or do what everyone else does and meet under the four-faced clock in the middle of the main concourse, an age-old tradition that still sees an expectant crowd milling around. Within a stone's throw of London's buzzing South Bank, commuters and visitors stream down the stations steps, passing under the Victory Arch, towards the River Thames. On Friday evenings there are wheelie suitcases galore as people head off to the coast or country.
