This is a London Underground station in the City of Westminster, known by various names during its history. It is served by the Circle, District, Northern and Bakerloo lines. The station has two entrances, one on Victoria Embankment and the other on Villiers Street. The station is adjacent to Victoria Embankment Gardens and is close to Charing Cross station and Embankment Pier. The station is in two parts: sub-surface platforms opened in 1870 and deep-level platforms opened in 1906 and 1914. A variety of underground and main line services have operated over the sub-surface tracks and part of the station was reconstructed in the 1920s. In 2014 major work commenced to replace the 80 year old escalators.
