Victoria is not only well placed for getting up close to Britain's royalty, but also has plenty of great facilities for your arrival.
Freshen up in the toilets, including accessible facilities for wheelchair users, and find baby changing stations too. You can also withdraw cash from the ATMs or change your currency at the bureau de change close to the Buckingham Palace exit.
If you're being picked up, there's a nearby car park for long and short stays. Register with Source London and you can also use the electric car charging points. There's a taxi rank close to platforms 13 and 14, where you'll find a nearby bicycle parking zone too.
Victoria is well served by a range of eateries, from fast food to more substantial places to grab a bite. Enjoy a pint at Sports Bar & Grill or a coffee at Costa, or perhaps pick up a book or magazine for your trip from WHSmith. The Excess Baggage Co is ideal for leaving your luggage, if you have to check out a few hours before your outward journey and want to squeeze in some more sightseeing.
Discover Buckingham Palace, a must-see when visiting London, as well as the other landmarks that make the area famous.
This is one of the Queen's official homes, where you can see the changing of the guard ceremony at 11:00 am every day, or 10:00 am on Sundays. In the summer, it's possible to tour the inside of the palace, for a closer look at the British Royal Family and the building's history.
Stroll down the Mall from Buckingham Palace and admire the beautiful surroundings of St James' Park, with swans swimming through the ponds. At Green Park, visit tributes to those lost in war at the Bomber Command and Canada Memorial.
At nearby Pimlico, the Tate Britain is devoted to British art, from 1500 to the present. There's a superb amount to see in the permanent displays, while you can check out the programme of temporary exhibitions during your visit. There's also a cinema here, hosting screenings of films from the world of art.
Since 1985, this has been one of London's most renowned modern art galleries. The exhibitions focus on innovative artists who are known for the bold character of their works, housed in splendid surroundings.
