Embankment

Embankment. The Embankment is the roadway by the River Thames. In 1863 an Act of Parliament was passed for the building of the embankments and work started immediately on the new Victoria Embankment between Westminster and the Temple. It was completed and opened to the public in 1870.

The District Line station was opened as CHARING CROSS on 30 May 1870. The Bakerloo Line station, opened on 10 March 1906, was first named EMBANKMENT; then re-named CHARING CROSS (EMBANKMENT) on 6 April 1914 when the Northern Line plat¬forms were opened. The combined station was named CHARING CROSS on 9 May 1915. It was re-named CHARING CROSS EMBANKMENT on 4 August 1974, being further re-named as EMBANKMENT on 12 September 1976.
