Bank Tube station, also linked to Monument Tube station, is one of the busiest tube stations in London and sees in excess of 57 million entries and exits every year. The station has existed since 1884 and is right in the centre of the City of London, with some of the best transport links of any station in London.
Bank & Monument Underground Stations are served by almost every tube line: Central, Northern, District, Circle, DLR, and Waterloo & City Lines can all be reached by either Bank Station or Monument. Due to the central location of the station and the large number of commuters it can be somewhat difficult to find parking. It is therefore generally much easier and cheaper to book a parking space near Bank Underground Station in advance of visiting the station.
The station is named in reference to the Bank of England building, which is located outside the exit and was originally designed by John Soanes, one of the most famous architects in British history, though much has now been replaced by Herbert Bakers rebuilding. The Great Fire of London Monument, of which Monument Station is named after, is also a popular tourist attraction with excellent views of London. It was built in memory of those that died in the 1666 great fire.
