Iconic landmarks

Surrounded by the Royal Palaces and Parks, Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, Victoria is a short walk from London’s biggest tourist attractions. Step away from the hot-spots, and you’ll realise Victoria boasts its own iconic landmarks.

Westminster Cathedral Tower

The architecture alone is reason enough to visit Westminster Cathedral, but a trip up the tower raises this sightseeing trip to another level. 64 meters to be precise. The panoramic views from the top will impress tourists and Londoners alike.

Victoria Palace Theatre

If you have an afternoon or an evening to spare, don’t miss a show at the famous Victoria Palace Theatre. The recently refurbished theatre is home to the award-winning Broadway musical Hamilton.

Curzon Cinema

This boutique cinema not only offers the latest releases, but also hosts cultural events and Q&As. Doors open 30 minutes before the first screening of the day making this the ideal spot to unwind after work, with a drink in the comfortable lounge bar.

The Other Palace Theatre

Discovering, developing and reimagining musical theatre is at the heart of what The Other Palace is about. Plus there’s The Other Naught Piglet restaurant on the 1st floor, offering seasonal creative small plates and an extensive wine menu.

Private serviced offices

All of the things which make Victoria a great place to visit make it an even better place to work. Particularly for businesses looking for flexible, customisable office space.
