For a fun day out, Victoria is Queen
19 September 2015
Victoria named after her majesty the queen is a small but bustling area within the fabled city of Westminster.
So what makes life in Victoria so sought after? Transport links may not be the most glamorous of selling points but thats exactly what Victoria’s trump card is.
Victoria train and coach stations are minutes away from of each other to whisk you away if you need a change of scenery. Plus, the Victoria line is one of the capitals more modern and speedier lines and with the District and Circle lines flowing through here you can be on the steps of Picadilly Circus within 10 minutes. The rooms to rent in this central area are quite affordable. It’s zone 1 location means you are a swift journey away from sampling some of the best places the capital has to offer.
Don’t get the wrong idea, Victoria isn’t solely a great travel hub. Some excellent restaurants and bars are here to cater to everyone passing through. Just five minutes from the station you will find Tozi, a restaurant which serves it’s succulent venetian style dishes cichetti style – which means to be shared. They even have their own Prosecco on tap and they take their cocktails very seriously. With that combination its easy to see why it’s considered one of the best places to dine in the area.
For culture in Victoria, look no further than the magnificent Westminster Cathedral. Religious or not it’s worth a visit purely for the stunning architecture inside and out. There also is the Victoria Palace theatre which has been running in the area since 1832. It is a traditional theatre that shows more popular forms like musicals with the Billy Elliot musical pencilled in to run there until December 2016.
And of course you can’t miss Buckingham Palace. Pretty sure that landmark doesn’t need too much explanation but it is one London’s best known, the queen calls it home and the whole building and gardens aren’t exactly bad on the eye.
So there you have it, Victoria is one of the best locations in London for it’s brilliant transport links and location but there’s also plenty here to keep you entertained once the station doors shut.
