Named for the bustling train station, Victoria is a convenient, inexpensive option for visitors who wish to stay within Westminster. Victoria is a commercial and residential neighborhood, that can be relatively noisy and crowded. Though it is not home to many tourist attractions, it is within walking distance of Westminster Abbey and has its own "Little Ben" clock tower. It is also home to the Victoria Palace Theater, a historic theater that hosts popular musicals and an annual Royal Variety Show.
Many hotels and bed & breakfasts have sprung up in Victoria to accomodate visitors on a budget. Home to the massive Victoria station, it is a convenient location if not the most picturesque or quaint (it can be crowded and noisy).
