Waterloo station, also known as London Waterloo,is a major central London railway terminus in London, England , It is near the South Bank in the London Borough of Lambeth, and in Travelcard Zone 1. In the financial year from 2007/8 (during which Eurostar services stopped using it) the station handled some 100.307 million passengers. The number of people passing through the station is considerably greater, as this figure is based on ticket sales for London Waterloo alone and does not include usage data for the Underground and Waterloo East. The Waterloo complex ranks as one of the busiest passenger terminals in Europe, comparable to the Gare Saint-Lazare and second only to the Gare du Nord in Paris.It has more platforms and a greater floor area than any other railway station in the UK. (Clapham Junction, just under four miles down the line, has the highest number of trains.) It is the terminus of a network of railway lines in South West England and the suburbs of London.
