Embankment [LPTB]

South side entrance to Embankment Underground station, known as Charing Cross until 1979, on 7th December 2019. Originally opened by the Metropolitan District Railway with its extension from Westminster Bridge (now Westminster) to Blackfriars in May 1870 where the tracks and platforms are shared between Circle and District Line trains. The deep level lines, now known as the Bakerloo and Northern, did not arrive here until Edwardian times.
