Architecture and Points of Interest

Someone else will have to write this bit: Fix Please. Note this is points of interest about the station itself, like the "Platform For Art" thing at Gloucester Road Station, also things like the explanation of how Bank Station is organised. --Kake


  • Cash machine -- Natwest, I think, or maybe HSBC. This is next to the Charing Cross Road (West) exit.
  • Payphones -- lots of these. At least 6 or 8.
  • Souvenir shop
  • Sandwich shop (probably all pre-packed)
  • Shop repair shop (also cuts keys) (there was a notice up today (2002-02-23) saying this is going to be closing, some time in March IIRC)

Nearby Places of Interest

Chinatown, Leicester Square, Soho. De Hems is a nice nearby pub to drink Belgian beers in.
