Prices start at £11 per locker per week.


Stasher works with hundreds of hotels, shops and businesses across the capital to provide bag storage locations all over town (called stashpoints). Their idea is that you can always find a locker within ten minutes walk.

All you have to do is visit their website and select the location closest to you, tell them how many pieces of luggage you want to store, and then drop off your belongings where you’ll be provided with a security seal.

The cost is £6 per item, per day, and they will also insure your contents up to the value of £1,500.
