Victoria is a commercial and residential area of inner city London, lying wholly within the City of Westminster, and named after Queen Victoria.

The area is vaguely defined as the streets around, and named after Victoria Station, including Victoria Street (see below), Buckingham Palace Road, Wilton Road, Grosvenor Gardens, and Vauxhall Bridge Road. Victoria consists predominantly of commercial property, private and social housing, with retail uses along the main streets.

Victoria Street runs on an east-west axis from the station to Broad Sanctuary at Westminster Abbey. Cardinal Place, located across the street from Westminster Cathedral, opened in 2006 and contains a selection of restaurants, banks and shops, including a Marks and Spencer store. Further along the street, there is a large House of Fraser department store (formerly the Army & Navy) opposite Westminster City Hall. At the Broad Sanctuary end is the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills building, the headquarters of Transport for London at Windsor House and New Scotland Yard, the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police Service.

Long before Cardinal Place opposite the Cathedral came into being there was a huge brewery (Stag Brewery) based at the western end of Victoria Street. From the early 17th century it started off as a small brewhouse with properties that once were part of St James's Palace. This then substantially grew and then was bought and owned by Watney & Co. They built lodgings around the brewery as well as amenities for their staff to use. By the end of the 19th century they were employing a sizeable number of staff. It closed down in 1959 and was demolished. All that now remains of it is a street named Stag Place and a pub called the Stag.
