Find a First-Rate Car Hire in London Charing Cross
Charing Cross is actually the junction of Strand, Whitehall and Cockspur Street, and is just south of Trafalgar Square in central London. It is named after the Eleanor cross that once stood there, in what was originally the hamlet of Charing. The site of the cross is now home to a statue of King Charles I. From the latter half of the 18th century Charing Cross has been seen as the centre of London and it is the main central datum points for measuring distances from London along with the London Stone, Hicks Hall and the doors of St Mary-le-Bow church.
