Your comments and questions

Ash Is this Victoria Coach station?

Staff No, Victoria coach station is about a 5 to 10-minute walk from Victoria train station. When you come out of the station you need to walk straight down Buckingham Palace Road, and it will be on the righthand side

Maria Moss How do I book tickets on tube from Victoria station to Paddington station

Staff It's not possible to book single tickets online in advance. You can only get those at the station from a ticket window or a self service machine. If you want to get a ticket online in advance then you'll have to get an Oyster card or travelcard... or you can just use your contactless bank card to tap down at the gate, then you won't need a ticket at all.

474DB Can you get from Victoria to Paddington direct on the circle line or do I need to change?

Staff The Circle line goes direct to Paddington (be aware that if you board the District line instead, from the same platform, then you would have to change)

Colin What line and platform do I use from Euston to Victoria on underground

Staff From Euston you'll need the Victoria southbound platform

Eugene How do I get from Victoria station to Earl's Court tube station please?

Staff You can just catch the district line the whole way. Get a westbound train. Don't jump on a Circle line train from the same platform though, because that doesn't go to Earl's Court

MM Which platforms do I need from Victoria to Baker Street on the underground

Staff Hi MM. You need the Victoria northbound platform. Then change onto the Jubilee northbound platform at Green Park.

Mark What is the best kind of same day return ticket for a trip from Victoria. What should I ask the guy at the counter? Thanks

Staff Hi Mark. If you're talking about a journey on the London underground then they don't do return fares anymore. You just pay the same price as two singles. You could get a 1-day travelcard, but it will cheaper just to use your contactless bank card instead. The maximum you'll pay is the 'daily cap' for whichever zones you're travelling through.

Comernigel How do I pay cash at Victoria station?

Staff Hi Comernigel. You can use cash at a manned window or a self-service ticket machine. But not every ticket machine accepts cash, some of them only accept cards (it will say so at the top)

Jenny Ann What is the best way to get to London City Airport? I think there is no direct line, isn`t it?

Staff Hi Jenny, You'll have to change trains at least twice to get to London City Airport --​transport/​train-journey.php?from=victoria&to=london-city-airport

Josie To ensure the train we get on is going the right direction, ie : from Victoria towards Warren Street and not away from Warren Street, which train should we board?

Staff Hi Josie. You'll need the northbound platform, and the LCD board on the platform will say the train is heading towards Walthamstow Central (which is the last stop on the line).

Mr D Harries I will be traveling from Victoria station to Greenwich by tube on Saturday but will I be charged twice on my contactless bank card, as I have to walk from Canary Wharf to Heron Quay to catch the DLR to Greenwich?

Staff Hi Mr Harries. If you exit the station through the barriers then that will be the end of your journey, and you'll be charged for another one when you reboard at Heron Quays. You could just change onto the DLR at Canary Wharf though. Heron Quays is very close by, but you don't really need to change there

angela Are the trains from victoria to kew above ground?

Staff Hi Angela. Its mainly below ground to Earls Court, then after that its all above ground to Kew, apart from a little bit after Hammersmith

Eric How does one get from District line (coming from Hammersmith) out of Victoria station at the right place to catch the #2 bus?

Eric I should have added that the need is to use lift(s) to get from the track level to the street, avoiding all stairs since heavy luggage is involved.

Staff Hi Eric. Bus stop F is the one nearest to the front of the station. Stop H is close as well, but it depends which direction youre travelling (H goes towards Marylebone, F to Norwood)

Eric Thanks. Any particular advice on where to sit on a District train coming from Hammersmith in order to exit at Victoria near a lift, or where to find a lift upon exiting the train which will place us near the front of the station? As I wrote in my second query, we are seeking to avoid stairs getting to the surface level and out of the station.

Staff There’s definitely a lift from the underground up to the main booking hall, so you dont need to climb any stairs. we dont have a map of the underground part, but this map shows where the lift comes out into the booking hall (its the one near the bottom, by the underground sign - you can see Terminus Place where your bus stops are) -​wp-content/​uploads/2021/08/Victoria-Map.pdf

Eric Great information; thanks. Last question: is there any benefit to changing from Piccadilly line to District line at Baron's Court vs. Hammersmith? I know the latter is simply a cross-platform situation. Baron's Court has been suggested as less busy, but unknown if it is also simply a cross-platform transfer. Recommendation?

Staff Assuming that you want both trains going in the same direction then its cross platform. otherwise youll have to use the stairs up and stairs back down again. hammersmith, earls court and south kensington are usually the busiest stations along that stretch, but it depends when youre going, lots of people will probably get off at hammersmith so maybe it will be easier to get a seat

Justin How large are the lockers at this station (height, width, depth)?

Staff Hi Justin. We've emailed them for you, and will see what they say -​en/​left-luggage
