How London’s Great Stations Were Built – and How They Transformed the City

Christian Wolmar

The eminent transport historian Christian Wolmar describes how London’s great railway terminuses were built and how, as ‘massive disruptive forces whose impact stretched well beyond their boundaries’, they transformed the city. From the opening of London Bridge Station in 1836 to the completion of Marylebone in 1899, Wolmar describes the cutting-edge technology and the Gothic and classically inspired architecture that came together in the development of the city’s twelve major railway stations.
