History of Liverpool Street 

Initially build as the latest terminal for the Great Eastern Railway, Liverpool Street Station first opened its doors in 1874, with the railway terminus playing its part in both world wars, solidifying its place in the nation’s history. The station itself occupies approximately 10 acres of land that historically housed the Bethlem Royal hospital, with the City of London Gasworks and the City of London Theatre both being demolished to accommodation for the quickly expanding station. Within the first ten years of the station’s operation it saw approximately 60 trains pass over its lines each day, with more recent years seeing Liverpool Street be hailed as the capital’s third busiest station as around 66 million passengers pass through each year.
