As one of the busiest transport interchanges in London and the political centre of the city respectively, both Victoria and Westminster see a huge number of people pass through the neighbourhoods each day. Victoria station acts a gateway to the south of England but it’s not just about trains and buses. Bordering Belgravia, Westminster, Chelsea and Pimlico, it’s close to lots of tourist spots, and Victoria also boasts two impressive theatres, the Victoria Palace Theatre (home to Hamilton) and the Apollo Victoria Theatre (where Wicked is playing). And with the development of the Nova complex and Market Halls Victoria, several places to eat and drink too.
Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben….Westminster is hitting big when it comes to iconic London landmarks so naturally the area is awash with tourists taking in all that history. Head away from the attractions and you might spot a politician or two in one of the area’s numerous pubs or even wolfing down a fry-up at the Regency Cafe. If art-watching rather than people-watching is your thing, there’s lots of British art and some impressive exhibitions to admire at Tate Britain.
