History of Victoria
Victoria Station was named after Queen Victoria when it was built in 1861. As the years have passed Victoria has become a smart neighbourhood but up until the 19th century it was known as the Devil’s Acre.
Full of crime, misery and poverty London’s poor gathered here to live. Authors of the time such as Charles Dickens referred to it as a dreaded area which was unsafe and unclean.
Today’s Victoria is a far cry from those times, but the area is still undergoing improvements to bring better transport and facilities to residents, commuters and tourists. It’s an exciting place with young businesses and entrepreneurs moving in.
Landmarks in Victoria
Victoria’s most famous landmark is Westminster Cathedral. This is the seat of the Archbishop of Westminster and the Mother Church for Roman Catholics in England and Wales. It’s the only example of neo-Byzantine architecture in London.
The area around Westminster Cathedral was originally a marsh that was reclaimed by Benedictine monks. The foundation stone was laid in 1895 and today you can visit to enjoy amazing views across London.
The Apollo Victoria is also worth a visit. In the 1930s it was an art deco cinema but today it’s a theatre hosting popular West End musicals.
