As you usually end up spending more time in Victoria Station than expected due to delays, it’s worth admiring the restored interior that dates all the way back to 1844.
One of my favourite features is the former First Class Café that currently houses Starbucks and the station’s pub. That art nouveau lettering is just 👌🏻
