departures from Victoria
Coach Station, London
London's Victoria Coach
Station is one of the main hubs for express service departures to the UK
and Europe. Many overnight services depart from the coach
station to varied destinations from Aberdeen to Amsterdam.
These services are run by National Express and Eurolines with the last
departure leaving as late as 23h30. Only the dedicated or
the deranged observe these twilight operations, but Photo Transport was
there on Friday 14th July 2000 taking notes ...
