From Victoria Station 

From Victoria Station you can take either a taxi or public transport (the Underground, a train or a bus) to your Homestay or other accommodation. 

When you book accommodation through Victoria School, we will tell you the nearest train or underground station to your Homestay, Residence or Student House. We will give you advice on the best way to travel to your accommodation. 


By taxi 

Victoria School can arrange transfer service for students arriving at all London airports and some railway or coach stations in London.  

Please contact Victoria School directly for a taxi quote. 

Taxi tip!

We do not recommend taking a taxi from Luton Airport or Stansted Airport. A taxi from these airports can be very expensive and often takes longer than travelling by train into Central London.
