With Buckingham Palace and Westminster just a short walk away, Victoria is suitably grand, making it one of the more picturesque options for serviced apartments in London.
Clarendon’s serviced apartments in Victoria
The most significant reason for choosing corporate accommodation in Victoria is the almost instant access it gives residents to London Victoria Station – a large commuter railway linking London’s southern boroughs to the centre of the city. Close to Westminster and Pimlico, its buildings are particularly regal and picturesque – a fittingly grand tribute given how close it is to Buckingham Palace. Offering a high speed rail link to Gatwick Airport, it’s a convenient central location for international travel, too.
Clarendon’s top tips for living in Victoria
Nestled between Pimlico, Belgravia and Westminster, those booking into long stay serviced apartments in Victoria will find themselves surrounded by some of the most architecturally beautiful streets in London. With white stucco mansions rising up from the wide streets, its grandeur never fails to impress, making it a beautiful place to walk around. Use nearby St James’ Park for exercise or run over Vauxhall Bridge to Battersea Park – an equally beautiful but often quieter south London public garden.
Given its age, Victoria Station has plenty of hidden treasures to be sought out during the morning commute – one of its most fascinating being the wall maps made from glazed tiles that each depict a much older, less complex London transport route than the one we enjoy today.
Clarendon’s guide to living in Victoria
Over the last couple of years, Victoria has undergone a renovation project and thanks to the influx of new bars, cafes and brasseries, feels much less transitory than it once did. With Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace both less than a mile away, taking in some of London’s heritage is easy. On the walk, you may spot the Little Ben Clock Tower – a smaller replica and twin to the more famous Big Ben sitting above the Houses of Parliament. A little further along the river, the Tate Britain hosts the UK’s national collection of British art and is a peaceful spot to wander around.
Clarendon’s serviced apartments in Victoria also benefit from being close to Sloane Square – a bustling hub of designer shops and home to the Saatchi Gallery, which is a privately owned space that hosts contemporary and modern art exhibitions. The Royal Court Theatre can also be found there and is widely regarded as one of the best places to see new plays before they transfer to the West End. However, with two of London’s leading theatres in the vicinity, Victoria itself offers plenty in the way of culture and entertainment for local residents.
