Location notes
A classic shot of Victoria station arrivals with the former Battersea Power station in the background. This location is just a few minutes walk from Victoria Station, just near the entrance of the Police Station.
Railway type and traffic
There are only Passenger trains running in and out the Victoria Station with the occasional charter.
It is on top of the road towards the Police Station, with a view of the former Battersea Power Station. The road is busy. But the lack of lighting would make the location useless at night.
Road directions
From the West Cross route that passes the Westerfield Shepherds Bush shopping centre continue south along the road, the A3220, and head east along the embankment and under the railway out of Victoria Station. You will pass the railway sidings on the left. At the traffic lights immediately after this turn left up Lupus Street. Follow this road and turn left onto Sutherland Street and continue until you reach the bridge.

Only late summer evenings will throw light on the front of inbound workings. Between roughly 11:00 and 14:00 the sun will be directly in shot backlighting everything.
