The Lunnon station group is a group o 18 railwey stations served bi the National Rail network in central Lunnon. Most are terminal stations, either serving major national services or local commuter routes. A small number are through-stations that are considered terminals for ticketing purposes. All current stations in the group fall within Lunnon fare zone 1. A ticket marked "London Terminals" allows travel tae any station in the group via any permitted route, as determined bi the National Routeing Guide.

Most Lunnon terminal stations were developed in the mid-19t century durin the initial boom o rail transport. Many stations were built around the edge o central Lunnon, stoppin at what is now the London Inner Ring Road, because it was prohibitively expensive tae build right in tae the centre, an because each railwey was owned bi a private company competin with the others. The creation of the Lunnon Unnergrund provided a practical connection tae the various termini, which continues tae be the case as o the 21st century. Many o the stations have been upgraded an modernised tae provide a greater capacity an connections tae the network. The first Lunnon terminus, London Bridge, has been rebuilt an expanded on numerous occasions an, o the major 19t century terminals, only Broad Street has closed.

The Lunnon terminals had a significant impact on the local area. Originally, the demolition o poor properties, particularly sooth o the River Thames caused blight an deprived areas around the station. This has changed in the 21st century, where development around the main terminals has been well-received an attracted occupants an businesses.
