London’s Victoria Coach Station (VCS) opened its doors to visitors over the weekend in celebration of its 85th anniversary. The iconic Art Deco station – which is operated by Transport for London (TfL) – played host to heritage vehicles from every decade since 1930. Over the weekend everyone honoured the station’s colourful history with a display of a dozen heritage coaches, which were free for visitors to explore.

To mark the occasion, Thames Valley & Great Western Omnibus Trust – which helped organise the event – launched a 32-page book celebrating the first 85 years of VCS in pictures. Titled ‘Victoria Coach Station 1932 – 2017, the first 85 years in pictures,’ the publication has been produced in collaboration with the Bus Archive at the Kithead Trust.
