Greater London Station
The station was first opened in 1854 and has recently benefited from a major redevelopment. This has included a new customer information system, new platform surfaces and a new shopping, eating and waiting area called "The Lawn". "The Railway Station" (1862) by Frith illustrates passengers boarding a train at Paddington station. The detailing of Brunels roof and Digby Wyatts ornamentation is exceptionally clear and has assisted in recent restoration works.

The Woolwich Ferry is a service across the River Thames linking Woolwich in the London Borough of Greenwich with North Woolwich in the London Borough of Newham. It also links two ends of the inner London orbital routes: the North Circular and the South Circular. The Woolwich Free Ferry was opened on 23 March 1889 by the 'London County Council' (L.C.C.). However all the planning and construction for the ferry was carried out by 'The Metropolitan Board of Works', but they were replaced by the LCC two days before the ferry service was opened. The 'Greater London Council' (GLC) took control of the ferries after the abolition of the LCC on 31 March 1965. After the abolition of the GLC in 1986 the responsibility was taken over by Greenwich Council. Now Greenwich Council run the ferry on behalf of Transport for London (TfL)
