There’s nothing more exciting than Victoria. It seems rather
ironic considering the dour, prudy nature of the monarch whose name it takes
after, but Victoria really is a hotbed of excitement.
For a start, it’s one of the main gateways into the city, one
of the places that throbs with commuters, people going home to their families,
teenagers going to gigs, travellers, weary eyed workman and bright eyed
hopefuls. It’s a mixing pot for the highs and the lows of London, and
everything in between. That lends it a pretty electric atmosphere, as people
you never thought you’d see in the same place rub shoulders and share idle chit
Those that have a little more time peruse the many shops that
litter the station and the little boulevard that extends behind. They stop and
buy a hot meal or a cup of piping hot coffee and sit on benches and sills,
watching the people go by and soaking up the atmosphere. They sit in business
suits, unbuttoned shirts, long dresses, tiny skirts, colourful t-shirts, ripped
jeans, high heels and steel capped boots, all different yet all alike. They
wait for friends, family, colleagues or Victoria escorts: anyone that can lend
a little conversation and companionship.
From here the world is their oyster. Like its passengers,
Victoria has a little bit of everything. You could go to one of the many fine
restaurants and enjoy a chargrilled steak, fine French cuisine or the delicate
coconut and coriander that defines exotic Thai flavours.
Or maybe you’d rather have a drink at one of the local bar,
an imported beer maybe, after a long hard week, or a colourful cocktail in a
Of course, no visit would be complete without taking one of
Victoria’s stunning escorts to see the award winning and truly excellent
Wicked, at the Apollo theatre. It tells the story of 2 witches, as they
struggle to put aside their differences in a world filled with magic and
intrigue. It acts as a darker prelude to the sunny world that appears in the
iconic film The Wizard of Oz, and is based on a novel by Gregory Maguire. The
show is an absolute delight, with dazzling displays of colour and costume that
put the West End to shame. The songs are filled with energy and verve but they
avoid being twee by offering sombre subject matter encased in the usual energy
of the stage. Elphaba’s sonorous ballad, Defying Gravity, is particularly
moving and as the song reaches its defiant conclusion, the audience are
normally on their feet, wiping tears from eyes as they salute the performance
with rapturous applause.
Although the show was originally staged in Broadway, it has a
true resonance with its British home in Victoria. It’s the tale of an outcast
witch, someone who refuses to follow the rules and is willing to ignore social
conventions in order to be happy. This is the spirit of Victoria: a rebellious
energy that wants to be free and expressive. If you’re going to be passing
through the area any time soon, remember to be true to yourself and have fun
without worrying about what anyone else thinks.
