On the 11th of July, 1848 London’s Waterloo Station opened. Known at the time as Waterloo Bridge Station, it didn’t adopt its current name until 1866.

The station was renovated and expanded in in 1854, 1860, 1869, 1875, 1878 and 1885, and was then rebuilt to incorporate the London Underground from the end of the century into the early 1900s.
