lockers in London's Victoria Station

I have a full day layover in London on my flight from Dallas to Pisa and will be going into London for the day via the Victoria Express. I can not remember if there are lockers in the station so that I can leave my carry-on bag there for the day while I trapse around London. I would appreciate knowing if there are some there or lockers to rent at Gatwick Airport.

I believe that UK removed all such facilities years ago to prevent bombs and such being stored away. What they may offer is a "left luggage" service, where you can check your bag(s) and pay by the hour or day to store them. I know that Gatwick has left luggage because I have used it to store some items for a week prior to returning to the airport to fly home. I would suggest you use the left luggage service at Gatwick. It is right in the main terminal building.

Here is the info there is one in both terminals:

Both Gatwick and Victoria Station have places to leave your luggage, not individual lockers but services that hold your stuff for you (for a fee of course). The one at Victoria is between platforms 7 and 8.

I believe the left luggage service is privately operated. The prices were quite high, perhaps 4-6 pounds per bag or item, and they were pretty stingy about what constituted an item.

In August 2001, we used the left luggage area at Victoria Station. We were able to get 4 rolling luggage bags (2 large & 2 carryon size) into one large locker. We put the bags in early in the morning and retrieved them in late afternoon. It was a bit pricey, but I can't recall exactly how much it cost. And, I don't know if any changes have occurred since 9/11.

yup, there are lockers, very easy to find, the gent rifles through your stuff to make sure you aren't stashing a bomb, you buy your ticket, cram your stuff in, and off you go. It's about 8 pounds as I recall.

I don't think you'll find any lockers in any airport.

I'm sorry, my experience was at Waterloo, not Victoria. Sorry to confuse things.
