A station has been on this site since 1839, only nine years after George Stephenson built the first inter-city line. Originally a wooden building, the impressive 13 platform stone station was opened in 1877 and was easily the largest in the world. Over the interim years, new platforms have been added, and although it suffered heavily in World War II, it’s been tastefully restored to its most iconic architectural period. The heavy glass and curling iron roof, so typical of the Victorian era as it headed into the splendor of Art Nouveau, still graces the ceilings of the concourse, earning the station Grade II listed status.
