Waterloo tube station is in Zone 1 on the Northern, Bakerloo, Jubilee and Waterloo & City lines. Itís located inside Waterloo mainline railway station from where overground trains depart for locations in southern England and the south coast including Bournemouth, Southampton and Portsmouth. Waterloo is the largest and busiest railway station in Britain.
The station is situated close to a busy roundabout linking York Road, Stamford Street, Waterloo Road and Waterloo Bridge. It is just south of the river Thames close to the southbank so technically in south London although still in central London.
Close to the station lie many well known attractions and sites of interest. The British Film Institute's IMAX Cinema can be found on the large roundabout next to the station, with the largest screen in the country which often shows films in 3D. The south bank next to the Thames makes an interesting walk, both to view the river with its traffic of boats and also the buildings nearby. The section between Waterloo Bridge and Westminster Bridge has many street performers who earn a living by amusing the crowds who pass by. They range from silver and gold painted 'human statues' to comedians, jugglers, musicians, dancers and impromptu street theatre acts.
A number of major performance venues are located on this stretch of the south bank including The Royal Festival Hall, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The National Film Theatre which specialises in non mainstream films and in the opposite direction towards Blackfriars Bridge, The National Theatre, the design of which was said by Prince Charles to resemble a 'monstrous carbuncle'.
Jubilee Gardens is a park on the southbank and nearby is located one of London's newest and now most well known attractions, The London Eye, also known as The Millennium Wheel as it first opened during the Millennium celebrations in 2000. Visitors can take 'flights' on the wheel which revolves slowly during the 30 minute ride and provides spectacular views across the whole of London from the top. Queues can be very long so advance booking is recommended.
Also nearby is County Hall which formerly served as the centre of the capital's local government but has now been converted into a number of attractions including The London Aquarium and The London Film Museum.
Waterloo is not an area to find shopping of any note but does provide plenty of dining facilities. The National Film Theatre under Waterloo Bridge has a restaurant which extends outdoors during good weather and makes an interesting spot to watch the crowds go by. There are numerous restaurants on the southbank so visitors won't have to look far to a place to eat.
