The Liverpool Street area consists of the Liverpool Street Railway Station and its surrounding neighbourhood. The third busiest station in London and one of the busiest in the whole UK, the area is always packed with people. Historically significant, the station was the end destination for the Kindertransport, a rescue service that saved thousands of Jewish children from the Nazi regime just before World War II. The neighbourhood is a mix of old and new, with magnificent Victorian buildings contrasting against stark modern architecture. Liverpool street restaurants are great in number and range from super affordable to very expensive. Unlike some of the more pricey parts of London, the Liverpool Street area is a great destination for a casual lunch or dinner with family and friends.
