Most trips to London involve using the London Underground, and any London visitor will be hard pressed to leave the city without a stop at Victoria Station. Housing both subway, bus and rail lines, Victoria Station is a busy place, serving over 115 million passengers every year.
Victoria Station as it exists today is the natural outgrowth of the merging of two separate stations, the Brighton and the Chatam.
The western station originally housed the Brighton line to London Bridge. This portion consisted of a station building and a hotel, the Grosvenor. The eastern side was occupied by the Chatam line. With the creation of the Southern Railway in 1924, the two stations became one and renovations were undertaken to fully connect them.
There are also two connected Underground stops at Victoria Station. Built more than a century apart, they are now linked via a pedestrian path. This Underground station alone serves over 80 million passengers a year and is the second busiest station in the Underground system.
Visiting Victoria Station
Today, Victoria Station serves the Southern and Southeastern rail lines, and the Gatwick Express – a non-stop ride to Gatwick Airport. It is also a stop on the District, Circle, and Victoria tube lines.
There are a wide variety of dining and shopping options at the station along the street sides and in the upper level Victoria Place area. Victoria Station is convenient to many London attractions and a variety of fine hotels and is a brief walk from Buckingham Palace and St. James park.

This is a meticulous, well run very hip hotel, well located to the Earl's Court Underground. The furnishings are wonderful, and you can see the pride that has been taken in the design and the theme.[More]
