The Victoria Palace theatre is one of two major theatres in the Victoria region, with a third theatre (St James’ Theatre) having recently opened nearby. Situated just across the road from the Victoria Apollo, the two theatres are one of the areas main attractions. Victoria itself has seen quite a lot of development in recent years, with the new Cardinal Place shopping centre being recently being built, which houses a wealth of new retail outlets and eateries. Victoria is nearer the centre of London and close to Buckingham Palace, meaning that there are a lot of transportation options, including a National Rail station, a Tube station, many bus stops and a extremely useful coach station that connects London to most cities in the UK.
