Never mind that it’s Queen Elizabeth’s London neighborhood, the former home of Winston Churchill, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ian Fleming, plus a major British transport hub — until very recently, no one paid much attention to the look and feel of Victoria.
Crowded with commuters, government office workers and tourists, and lined with dirty, dreary Sixties office blocks, the central neighborhood of Victoria has been largely ignored by the wealthy and fashionable, despite its proximity to Buckingham Palace, St. James’s and Green Park, and its handsome stock of Victorian-era, red-brick apartment buildings.
