Victoria, London

Victoria is a commercial and residential area of inner city London, lying wholly within the City of Westminster, and named after Queen Victoria. The area is vaguely defined as the streets around, and named after Victoria Station, including Victoria Street, Buckingham Palace Road, Wilton Road, Grosvenor Gardens, and Vauxhall Bridge Road. Victoria consists predominantly of commercial property, private and social housing, with retail uses along the main streets. Victoria contains one of the busiest transport interchanges in London, including the listed railway station, the underground station as well as Terminus Place which is a major hub for bus and taxi movement. Victoria Coach Station - 800m southwest of the railway station provides long distance links to the UK and continental Europe.
