Attractions in Victoria
If you wish to take in the sights of London, many of the capital’s historic landmarks are accessible via Victoria tube station or by walking. Buckingham Palace, the residence of Queen Elizabeth II, Westminster Abbey, the House of Parliament, the London Eye, Green Park and Belgravia can all be reached within a short walk.
Designed by John Nash, Regent's Park, covers over 395 acres. Regent’s Park includes Queen Mary's Gardens-which features more than 12,000 roses of 400 varieties- the Open Air Theatre, London Zoo and Primrose Hill. This leafy space is a perfect escape from the perpetual hum of city life.
The Houses of Parliament, overlooked Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, is the location of the United Kingdom’s government. Constructed in 1016, the Gothic building known as the ‘heart of British politics’ is aesthetically stunning. It is possible to arrange a tour around the buildings at a nominal fee.
For a small price, visitors are able to ascend one of the most iconic modern landmarks in London to view the capital in all of its glory from the heights of the nearby London Eye.
