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. See the closest self-storage places to central London.

Self-storage – long term baggage storage in central London
