History

Euston Station holds the distinction of being the first inter-city railway station in London, opened in 1837 as the terminus of the London and Birmingham Railway (L&BR). The original design was a relatively modest affair but was notable for its iconic Doric propylaeum, known as the Euston Arch, which stood as a grand entrance to the station. As railway travel gained popularity, the station expanded its facilities to cope with the increasing demand. The early years of Euston station witnessed the rapid growth of rail travel, setting a precedent for further railway developments in London and across the UK.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, Euston Station underwent several expansions to accommodate the growing number of rail lines and passengers. However, by the mid-20th century, the station's facilities had become outdated. In the 1960s, as part of the modernization of British Railways, a significant rebuilding project was undertaken. This project led to the demolition of the original Euston Arch, a move that was met with considerable public outcry. The new station was designed to accommodate the needs of contemporary travelers, with updated amenities and an expanded train shed.

In recent years, Euston Station has continued to evolve to meet the demands of modern-day passengers and to prepare for future railway projects. It is set to play a critical role as a primary hub in the forthcoming High-Speed 2 (HS2) rail network, connecting London with major cities in the north of England.
