Between 2013-18, the redevelopment of London’s oldest railway terminus has created a transport hub that can accommodate 90 million passengers per year while offering more and faster connections for travellers. The first London Bridge station was opened at Tooley Street in 1836 by the London & Greenwich Railway, along with its line as far as Deptford. A second station opened beside it with the two finally becoming a single station in 1923. However, the resulting layout remained confusing right up until the reopening in 2018. Architect Grimshaw’s design is crowned by a rippling reflective canopy and underpinned by an expansive public concourse which links St Thomas Street to Tooley Street. A new retail arcade cuts through the Victorian archway in the Wester Arcade and the dark and foreboding Stainer Street road tunnel is now a bright pedestrian route where Me. Here. Now. by Mark Titchner welcomes travellers at the station’s northern gateway.
