Long considered to be the center of London, Charing Cross marks the junction of three major thoroughfares – Whitehall, the Strand, and Cockspur Street – and is located just south of Trafalgar Square. When you see sign posts showing the distance to major cities around the world, for London they are measuring to Charing Cross. This neighborhood has been more or less absorbed by neighboring areas and doesn’t really exist as a distinct locale.

The area is near a lot of the amenities that a big city has to offer, but tends to be a little more reserved. For those who would like to do a lot of travelling around England or just need to commute elsehwere in the city on a daily basis, Charing Cross is a transportation hub with one of London's nicer stations.

Charing Cross is bordered on the north by Chinatown, on the east by the Thames, on the south by Westminster, and on the west by St. James's.
