Liverpool Street station in 1896.

The station was first opened to traffic on 2 February 1874 by the Great Eastern Railway and was completely operational from 1 November 1875. From this date the original terminal: Bishopsgate railway station, was closed to passengers. It reopened as a goods station in 1881 but was destroyed by fire on 5 December 1964. The site is now being redeveloped as part of the extension of London Underground's East London line. Image File history File links Liverpool_Street_Station_1896. ...

The new station was designed by the Great Eastern's chief engineer, Edward Wilson and was built on a site which had been occupied by Bethlem Royal Hospital from the 13th century to the 17th century. A Corporation of London plaque commemorating the station's construction hangs on the wall of the adjoining former Great Eastern Hotel, which was designed by Charles Barry (junior) (son of Sir Charles Barry) and his brother Edward Middleton Barry. The station was named after the street on which it stands, which in turn was named in honour of British Prime Minister Lord Liverpool, having been built as part of an extension of the City of London towards the end of his term in office.

The construction of the station was due to the desire of the company to gain a terminal closer to the city than the one opened by the predecessor Eastern Counties Railway, at Shoreditch, that had opened on 1 July 1840. This station was renamed "Bishopsgate" in 1846. The construction proved extremely expensive due to the cost of acquiring property and many people were displaced due to the large scale demolitions. The desire to physically link the GER lines to those of the sub-surface Metropolitan Railway, a link seldom used and relatively soon abandoned, also meant that the GER's lines had to drop down to below ground level from the existing viaducts east of Bishopsgate. This means that to this day there are considerable gradients leading out of the station. Lord Salisbury, who was chairman of the Great Eastern in 1870, said that the Liverpool Street extension was "one of the greatest mistakes ever committed in connection with a railway."

The station was extensively modified between 1985 and 1992, including bringing all the platforms in the main shed up to the same end point and constructing a new underground booking office, but its facade, steam age iron pillars and the honour roll for Great Eastern Railway employees that died in the Great War were retained. The redevelopment coincided with the closure and demolition of neighbouring Broad Street station and the construction of the Broadgate development in its place. Liverpool Street was officially re-opened by HM The Queen in 1991. It was also at this time that the giant timetable board, which is suspended above the station concourse, was fitted at great expense. However due to technical difficulties there was a long delay after the official opening before it became operational.

The connected London Underground station has sub-surface platforms (opened by the Metropolitan Railway as "Bishopsgate" on 12 July 1875) on the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines. The Metropolitan had in fact served mainline platforms of the GER station from 1 February 1875, this through link having only a short operational life. It was this desire to link the two systems that had helped determine the sub-surface construction of GER's new terminal station at Liverpool Street.

In the years following the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States, fictional "docu-drama" portrayals of how a terrorist organisation might seek to attack London have frequently chosen Liverpool Street station as the specific target. London under attack, first shown by the BBC's Panorama programme in May 2004 [2], saw a lorry containing chlorine gas deliberately exploded at the junction of Shoreditch High Street and Commercial Street, just north of Liverpool Street station. In the programme the gas cloud hung over the station, and eventually killed 3000 people. In a second programme, Dirty War, also produced by the BBC and first shown in October 2004, a suicide terrorist detonates a "dirty bomb" just ouside the station, killing 200 people and rendering the area uninhabitable for 30 years. The programmers said that their programmes were backed by research and intended to be realistic imaginings. They said they chose Liverpool Street because of its unique position, on the border between the City of London and the East End. The British Government denounced both programmes as "alarmist and irresponsible" [3]. The programmes turned out to have a degree of truth following the attacks of 7th July 2005 (see "London Underground" above).
