The toilets here are a disgrace I went in 8 cubicles before finding a bearable one ....the others all had varying stages of filth.....and they have the cheek to charge 30p while the attendent does nothing . Avoid using these at all cost.

On a positive note the staff in the left luggage dept. Were really helpful and efficient.more

Eek! It's a bus station that's for sure! We were here to transit to Southampton for a cruise. Lots of vagrants and yucky people. Cunard should find another location for departures. Seating is crap too.more

There are a few decent-looking eateries in the coach station....more

My dad and I travelled out of the Victoria Coach Station on our recent trip to London. We had booked a one-day tour through Expedia, which had us boarding a coach bus from one of the gates at Victoria Coach station.

Do NOT get Victoria Coach Station confused with the regular station. I believe there is a Victoria station that has both trains and the London...more
