If you plan to visit London, luggage storage can be very convenient for visitors and tourists who have some time to spare in the capital before checking into their short let home or before their homeward journey.
You are able to store your bags or luggage at left luggage offices in some of London’s main train stations, at Victoria Coach Station and at other locations in the centre. There were once self-service lockers in some stations, but this is no longer the case in any of the main or underground stations in London. It is important to check the times that these offices close. Some of the offices inside shopping malls or museums may have a last collection time that is earlier than their general closing time.
