In the paved area directly to the north stands the South African War Memorial, unveiled in 1908

Haymarket Hub exterior[edit]

The Haymarket Hub building is a four sided modern glass structure. It is roughly square, 100' wide at its maximum width. It has a curved roof and wide radius corners, with each side featuring a full length arched feature, which roughly face each of the four compass directions. As well as containing the station hall, it also features retail units and a Nexus travel shop at ground level, while offices occupy the floors above.
