Charing Cross is a road junction in central London which connects the Strand, Whitehall and Cockspur Street. It is also the name given to one of London’s more important railway stations. Charing was once a hamlet which boasted a cross called Eleanor’s Cross, which was situated on the site where the statue of King Charles I, riding a horse, now stands.
Charing (the hamlet) grew to become a small village where coaches left for other areas of Britain and a hostelry called the “Golden Cross” stood in it. It is this inn that was mentioned by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, David Copperfield and Sketches by Boz.
