Victoria Station (London)

Victoria Station is one of the major railway termini of London.

It is situated in Buckingham Palace Road, at the corner of Victoria Street, and is named after Queen Victoria.

Originally more than one station, the buildings were constructed in 1960 by Robert Jacomb Hood and in 1862 by John Fowler.

The associated Grosvenor Hotel was built in 1861 by J. T. Knowles.

Places reached by train from Victoria include Brighton, Rochester, Canterbury, Margate, Ramsgate, Sandwich and Dover.

In Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest", one of the characters explains that he was found in a handbag in the left luggage office at Victoria, provoking the famous query "a handbag?"

Victoria Underground station is used by trains on the Circle Line, District Line and Victoria Line.

In the forecourt of the station is a bus station.
