If you are stuck at London Victoria Station at Iftar

It is Ramadan and you are fasting. If it is almost Iftar time and you are stuck near London's Victoria Station here are some tips for you. Grab a vegetarian sandwich from one of the newsagents at the station - WHSmith is prominent - or, go up the escalator to the Victoria Place Shopping Centre where Ba-Li Falafel can provide you with a falafel sandwich for your Iftar.

If you want a proper sit down Iftar dinner you should walk to Cafe Nouf. According to the restaurant's website, "Cafe Nouf is a Halal restaurant in central London where Arab and Muslim tourists are welcome to come and enjoy guaranteed halal food all year around and especially during the month of Ramadan." The restuarant is located just a 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station at 8 Lower Grosvenor Place (020 8617 0288).

If you decided to rent an electric car for your trip around London, you can park your car and get it charged at the Victoria Station public car park because they have recently installed 3 charging points for electric vehicles.

The Gatwick Express trains leave Victoria Station for Gatwick Airport every 15 minutes and take about 30 minutes to transport you from Central London to the airport.

The Victoria, Circle and District Lines all pass though the Victoria Tube Station. Tourists will find Victoria Station to be a convenient stop for visits to Buckingham Palace and St James Park.
