The building of the [[Jubilee Line Extension]] involved major tunnelling and re-routing. This involved closure of one direction of the [[Northern Line]] bank branch during 1997 and 1998. One of the consequences of this work is that the Northern Line now has reverse tracks between London Bridge and [[Bank Station|Bank]], i.e. the northbound platform is to the east of the southbound.

Zone 1 Station / Streetmap Link / Journey Planner

London Bridge is one of the oldest stations in London. It's also rather complex, containing a tube station serving two lines (the Jubilee Line and the Northern Line Bank branch), a terminus for trains from the the ex-BR Southern Central region from Sussex, north Surrey and South London Suburban lines, and also platforms for trains from south-east London and Kent that continue on to Blackfriars Station, Cannon Street or Charing Cross, and Thameslink services between Brighton, central London and Luton and Bedford.

Tube Station

Lines Served

Jubilee Line: west <--- Southwark <--- London Bridge ---> Bermondsey ---> east
Northern Line: north <--- Bank <--- London Bridge ---> Borough ---> south

The tube station was completely rebuilt when the Jubilee Line was extended through South London in 1999. There are now entrances to the station underneath the main line ticket hall and on Borough High Street.

Mainline Station

The station, being part of a Victorian railway viaduct, rests on top of a set of arches (which also form the roof of the London Dungeon, further down the street). One section underneath it (home to some fine upwards-flaring brick pillars) is now called "The Vaults", and has several "gourmet" food outlets, including a shop with many interesting chocolates. Upstairs in the station itself, there are the usual station food outlets (Burger King, Upper Crust) and other shops.

Trains from London Bridge go to Brighton, Gatwick, Hastings, Dover and other Kent and Sussex suburban destinations.

Part of it has a fancy glass roof, consisting of lots of pyramids. Before it was built, the wise engineers said "it's very pretty, but how will you clean it?". The architect said "pretty! shiny!". It was built, got filthy, ended up with a small forest of moss and ferns and saplings growing on it, and still hasn't been cleaned after something like two decades.
