If you are visiting London and arrive or stay near Bictoria don’t forget to drop into the visitor centre. Easy to find in the main entrance this office was very helpful for finding local attractions.

We used the Tourism group to get some general information. They were very helpful even though we didn't book any trips with them. The location is very convenient to the corner of Government Street, the harbor and Empress Hotel.

We found ourselves stopping by the Visitor Centre quite a few times with questions about guided tours, bus schedules, etc. They carry brochures for many attractions in the area, and you can speak to one of their friendly staff (Dale was esp helpful for us)....More

This must be one of the best Information Centres I've ever been in. Everything is laid out with meticulous attention to detal around the well lit, well ventilated room. The staff are pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. Booking for all excursions could be easier.
