Waterloo


Waterloo was named in commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo (1815). The name was also given to the new bridge over the River Thames (originally called Strand Bridge) which was opened by the Prince Regent on 18 June 1817, the second anniversary of the Battle.

The name was adopted for the mainline station opened on 11 July 1848, and later for the locality.

The Waterloo & City Line was built and run by the London & South Western Railway and its station was opened as WATERLOO on 8 August 1898. Ownership of the line and stations was trans-ferred to London Underground on 5 April 1994. The Bakerloo Line station was opened as WATERLOO on 10 March 1906, followed by the Northern Line station on 13 August 1926.
