Euston Railway Station, London

Euston Train Railway Station, London is a rail terminal that services over 71 million people each year. Located at Euston Road London NW1 2RT, the station is approximately five minutes east of Kings Cross.

The station was constructed and running since the inception of the Victorian Era in 1837. Unfortunately much of the original station was demolished by undergoing refurbishments during the1960’s. It was redesigned to a ‘Mod’ look with gray cemented slabs making the initial styling a faded memory. The only original sections that were left intact are two white-grey columns in Portland stone at the entranceways and a sculpture of the terminal’s chief engineer, Robert Stephenson.Euston Railway Station, London, England

In 2009, renovations were made in the outside piazza area. Unveiled in 1921 in the form of an obelisk, the War Memorial commemorates those who lost their lives in WWI and then WWII.
