Site: Victoria Coach Station (1 memorial)

SW1, Buckingham Palace Road, Victoria Coach Station

This is the departures building; the arrival area is hidden behind buildings on the other side of Elizabeth Street.

The plaque is inside, just to the right of the corner entrance shown in our photo. Leon Daniels blogged the unveiling of the plaque, reporting that a line-up of old coaches first arrived at VCS - lovely pictures.
