The trials and tribulations of Bank Holiday Travel - Solved


Oh, yes – the Bank Holiday weekend is nearly here! If that means you’re jetting off for a well-earned break, lucky you!


Or if you’re off to South West Four at Clapham Common, exploring London’s sights or even visiting old friends and family elsewhere in the UK, fingers crossed for a bit of sun… Either way, the Bank Holiday usually means one thing – a fair bit of travelling.

Rather than despair at the thought, with all the planned travel disruptions – embrace it! Because with any journey that goes near London Victoria, we can help make your time on the tracks go with a swing.

First up, Victoria is one of the unaffected stations this Bank Holiday, but it’s likely to be a little busier than normal - with travellers avoiding hic-ups elsewhere. So our top tip to avoid train travel-induced traumas this Bank Holiday is simply to give yourself extra time.

Fortunately for you, Victoria Place makes the perfect pit stop if you happen to find yourself with a bit of extra time on your hands. Whether you’ve just enough time to grab a drink on the go, or a bit more time to sit and relax, there’s a great choice of restaurants and cafés.  From Nero, Costa and Pret A Manger to Leon, Tortilla, Frankie & Benny’s, Prezzo and Café Rouge to name but a few – there is something for whatever takes your fancy.

Forgot those much needed travel essentials?
From toiletries and cosmetics at Boots, to magazines, books, headphones and more at WHSmith. Plus all your fashion essentials at New Look, Next, Joy, and Dorothy Perkins – Victoria Place has you covered.

The main London Stations affected by this weekend’s planned upgrade works include Waterloo, Euston, Liverpool Street, London Bridge, Paddington and Charing Cross. So if you’re visiting The Rugby League Challenge Cup at Wembley, the football, Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, Creamfields, Carfest, Notting Hill Carnival, The Edinburgh Festival, South West Four, Clapham or any other big event in and around our glorious capital, it’s worth planning ahead.
