Liverpool Street station, also known as London Liverpool Street station, is a central London railway terminus and connected London Underground station. With over 58 million passenger entries and exits from 2012 to 2013, this is one of the busiest railway stations in the UK, providing opportunities for brands to connect with a hugely valuable audience whilst they’re on the move and in an alert frame of mind.   

In 2015, London Liverpool Street station won the “Major Station of the Year” award at the prestigious National Rail Awards. The station was judged as an outstanding example of a station which is customer-friendly, has excellent retail facilities and helpful staff.  

In a couple of years, the station will look a little different as developments take place ready for the new Crossrail. Once complete, it will provide Liverpool Street station with new direct links to Canary Wharf and Heathrow airport, whilst also providing a faster route to London’s West End.
