About London Waterloo Station:

The London Waterloo Station is proof that sometimes the largest structures are accidental. When it was first built in the mid-1800s, there was no intention to make it a terminus. It was to remain a throughway of sorts, which allowed the train line to go East toward London.

As such, plans for station expansion were fairly non-existent. That isn’t to say that no new platforms or additions were built there over the years. There were. However, there was no rhyme nor reason to them in the grand scheme of things. As such, new platforms would spring up and eventually became stations-within-the-main-station. For example, Cypress Station, one of these stations-within-the-main-station had its own entrance, booking area and taxi stand.

Eventually, the powers that be decided that this haphazard method of building a station wasn’t the best way to proceed. Between 1900 and 1922, major renovations took place and during that time, the station became a major transportation hub.

Nowadays, it’s the United Kingdom’s largest station, as well as its busiest. Each day, a quarter of a million people pass through here on their way to someplace else.

When you do disembark, consider looking into Bounce’s options for luggage storage in Waterloo Station. We partner with a variety of businesses, including hotels and coffee shops. These businesses will store your bags for the day so you can sightsee free-handed. To find these businesses, check your Bounce app.

Things to Do in or Near London Waterloo:

When you disembark from a train at the London Waterloo Station, you’ve landed in some pretty prime territory. The Waterloo is near just about every cool attraction there is, including London’s most popular paid attraction. However, that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing else worth seeing. On the contrary, the area near the station is one of the city’s coolest spots. It’s unlikely that you’ll get bored when you go exploring the sites near the station.

As usual, we recommend that you make a day of it. Find a coffee shop to have lunch. Take in a gallery. Sightsee each out-of-the-way nook and cranny. And before you start this adventure, check into bag storage in Waterloo Station or nearby so that you can make the most of your adventure.

The London Eye

Anyone who has watched the opening to the BBC drama “Sherlock” has seen the London Eye. It’s that giant Ferris wheel on the water. It’s also the attraction that was mentioned in the opening of this section. Nearly four million people visit here each year, making it the UK’s busiest paid attraction. But this ain’t no county fair Ferris Wheel. Each car is an observation deck that has been built for comfort and to provide riders with great views of London. If there is a view worth seeing in London, you can probably see it from the London Eye. A must-see for visitors to the city, and it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Waterloo Station.

The South Bank

Since you’re probably going to be in the area, anyway, you should also plan on wandering around the South Bank. It’s easy to find. Just look for the Eye. That’s where it is. In fact, it could be argued that if you can only see one place, this it. A trip to the South Bank offers you the chance to visit the Imperial War Museum, to see some sea animals up close at the London Aquarium and to take in some amazing cultural sights. It’s considered London’s cultural heart, so it’s unlikely that you’ll run out of things to do.

Finally, when you get hungry, this is also an excellent place to be. The variety of food you can find in this area of London boggles the mind. Pretty much every cuisine in the world is here. It's a foodie's dream.

If you do plan on going, be sure to log onto your Bounce app to find some spots to drop your bags. Our partners in the area are happy to provide you and yours with luggage storage in Waterloo Station and the surrounding area.

Jubilee Gardens

If your walking trek through London has worn you down, then give yourself some downtime at the Jubilee Gardens. This open-air oasis is right near the London Eye.

Alice's Adventures Underground

What’s a trip to Great Britain without a literary romp, especially if that romp is through the world of “Alice in Wonderland?” Alice’s Adventures Underground allows visitors to eat, drink and be shrinky just like Lewis Carroll’s favorite rabbit hole adventurer. The experience comes with or without cocktails. It’s a dinner theater experience with a twist that only Alice can provide.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.

Isabel B.

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
