Left Luggage in London

You can store your bags and suitcases at left luggage offices at some of the main London train stations and at Victoria Coach Station.

There are no longer any self-service left lockers at London train stations and there are no lockers or left luggage offices at any London underground/tube station.

It can be expensive for short periods, so it’s worth asking your hotel, B&B or hostel if they have any bag storage facilities. Some will keep you bags for free, others will charge a small fee.

If you need to store bags for a week or longer, it’s cheaper to use a self-storage facility. Scroll to the bottom for a list of the closest self-storage places to central London.

Left luggage offices in central London

Museum and gallery cloakrooms

Most major London museums and galleries have cloakrooms and some have coin-operated lockers. Handy if you want to visit after checking-out of your hotel.

Fees and the size and/or weight restrictions vary. Large suitcases are generally not allowed. Check their websites for full details.

Self-storage – long term baggage storage in central London

If you need to store your bags for a week or longer, it’s much cheaper to use a self-storage facility rather than a left luggage office.

Prices are charged per square foot/square metre of storage space. The smallest size is usually half the size of a UK telephone box.

Top Tip: Get a written quote, not a verbal one. Some self-storage places will match or beat a quote from a rival company.
