If Victoria is fit for a Queen, then you know it’s got to be good. Buckingham Palace may be Queen Bee when it comes to property, but you can find a home with a modern take on the elegant sophistication of the Queen’s digs close by, and for considerably less cost. With transport galore and entertainment to revel in, Victoria promises you will stay amused.

The Queen may like her tea, but for when you’re wanting something stronger, you can head to B Bar for a never-ending supply of cocktails, martinis, mojito’s and more. This South African themed bar pairs safari décor with delicacies from the beautiful country. We especially recommend the Bushveld Martini, full of tasty Lovoka chocolate vodka, Amarula, Frangelico, bitters and cream. For those wanting to learn the method to the magic, join a cocktail and/or martini masterclass available for all abilities.

If you’re looking for an alternative way to spend your night, visit The Boat Show Comedy Club, where shows feature 4 great comics sure to strike your funny bone. For entertainment of the theatrical kind, head to the Victoria Palace Theatre for the likes of Billy Elliot and Hamilton, or the Apollo Victoria Theatre for Wicked– all highly acclaimed shows sure to earn your standing ovation.

Not only fantastic shows, but fabulous attractions are available within walking distance from Victoria. For you animal-lovers, both the ZSL London Zoo and the Sea Life London Aquarium house some of the world’s rarest of creatures, as well as the usual crowd favourites. You can even meet the animals themselves such as penguins, giraffes and meerkats or dive with sharks including those of the Black Reef Tip and Sand Tiger variety.

Madame Tussauds is also close by, housing one of the world’s best collections of ever-growing wax models of all your famous favourites. From Madonna to Marvel characters and even a few models of the Queen herself, you’re sure to take a selfie with some of the world’s biggest stars.

If you think that’s good, Victoria’s transport links are even better. Victoria Station is quite literally on your doorstep, with Oxford Circus and Euston Station both under 10 minutes away by train. Heathrow and London City Airport are only 50 and 45 minutes away respectively too. Various bus routes go from Victoria Station to locations including Marylebone, Lewisham and Waterloo.

From comedy to culture and everything in between, Victoria offers some of the best that London has to offer. And after all, isn’t that the point to LiFE - to revel in experiences?
