Fenchurch Station London
Near to Qbic design hotel Fenchurch Street is probably best known in recent years as being part of the 2012 Olympic Marathon route, however, the street is home to a wealth of both historical and modern buildings. At the junction of Fenchurch Street and Lime Street, once stood a Christopher Wren church, dedicated to the patron saint of France. This church was destroyed during the Great Fire of London in 1660. Wren then rebuilt the church but it was then demolished in 1878. Other churches once stood along this busy thoroughfare, however the Great Fire of London spared nothing in its path as it devoured much of this part of 17th century London.
Fenchurch Street railway station was the first station to be built inside the City of London. Opened in 1841, the station is unique among London termini in that it does not have a direct link to the London Underground. Whilst the terminal is relatively small, in terms of platforms, it is one of the most intensively operated stations in London.
