Left Luggage in London

Left Luggage Office Victoria Train StationYou can store your bags and suitcases at left luggage offices at some of the main London train stations, Victoria Coach Station and a few other places in central London.

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 ask your hotel, B&B or hostel if they have any bag storage facilities. Some will keep your bags for free, others will charge a small fee.

If you want to store bags for a few days or longer it’s much cheaper to rent a self-storage locker

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 size 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 few days or longer, it’s much cheaper to rent a locker in a self-storage facility rather than paying per bag at any of the left luggage offices mentioned above.

Prices are charged per square foot/square metre of storage space. The smallest locker is usually 10 sq ft/ 0.90 sq m, approximately the size of a large car boot. This is big enough to hold four to five suitcases.

Cost: Prices start from £11 per locker per week.

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