Walbrook is the latest name to be added to the Underground network in the heart of the city. The new entrance is connected to Bank station, so what does it look like, where does it connect to? We take a look, join us on our tour of the new Bank / Walbrook Station complex.

 

For nearly 100 years in the heart of the city Bank Station and its connected neighbour Monument Station, Where are they, when did they open..?

Bank station opened in February 1900, named after the Bank of England which sits almost above it. The Bank complex is the interchange for the Northern Line, Central Line, Waterloo & City Lines, and the Docklands Light Railway. The northern Lines precursor was a railway line called City and South London Railway. Bank Station is linked to Monument station by way of underground walk passageways. Monument station is named after the Monument to the great fire of London which opened in 1884. Monument station is the connection station for the District and Circle Lines. These stations are located in the heart of the city under the Zone 1 ticket fare, they remain one of the busiest interchange stations on the London Underground Network serving in excess of 100 million passengers per year, the 4th busiest in London.

The Walbrook entrance at Bank Station, what is Walbrook?

Walbrook has a historical connection to the site that goes way back to the Roman settlement of Londinium (London) and even further back as it represents one of London’s lost rivers. The Walbrook river was formed from tributaries from different areas in central London which flowed through the city of London and today underneath the Bank of England. The river no longer can be seen, but the name lives on in the name of the city ward Walbrook. It has been suggested the name Walbrook derives from the river crossing through the London wall i.e. Wall + Brook (river /stream)
