Bakerloo Line Walk – Day 3
Piccadilly Circus to Charing Cross

Piccadilly Circus is in the heart of London’s West End. One of the most photographed parts of it are the large illuminated adverts. So here is yet another photo that probably looks very familiar.

There are several theatres and the Trocadero centre nearby.


After passing the Theatre Royal on the Haymarket I reach Trafalgar Square which contains The National Gallery and Nelson’s Column.


I spot a old fashioned bus and then get to Charing Cross station.

Charing Cross to Embankment

The distance between these two station is so small that entrances to both stations can be seen in the below photo. Embankment is at the end of this road.

Along the way to Embankment are a number of shops and The Arches.

Embankment to Waterloo

Crossing the Hungerford Bridge gives a good view of the River Thames.

There are a number of entrances to Waterloo tube station. This one is by the Shell Centre building.

The London Eye is visible in the distance.

I go under a railway bridge to the South of Waterloo station and beyond a role of shops is Lambeth North underground station.

Lambeth North to Elephant & Castle

Walking down Kennington Road gets me to the Imperial War Museum. A pair of naval guns and a section of the Berlin Wall are positioned outside the museum. It is free to get in.

On George’s Road are various flats. Just by Elephant & Castle station is a small market.


Here is the last stop of the Bakerloo line, Elephant & Castle.
