How to get from London Stansted Airport to Victoria Train Station?

The official name of Victoria Station of the National Railway Administration is "London Victoria Station". The name is generally used by residents outside of London, but less used by residents of urban London.

In practice, NRA Victoria Station operates in two parts: East (Chatham), consisting of platforms 1-8, for the Chatham Main Line to Kent and its branches The terminal of the train. West (Brighton), consisting of platforms 9-19, is the terminal to Surrey and Sussex, and also includes the Brighton main line connecting Gatwick Airport and Brighton main line and its branches.

The station is divided into two parts because the track layout is not suitable for too much communication. The eastern platform is only served by the Chatham Main Line switch bridge in the Battersea area. The west platform is busier than the east platform, and some suburban train lines that originally used the west platform need to use the east platform. This often happens particularly with the Gatwick Express on the Brighton mainline, which uses the east platform during track maintenance works.

Victoria Station is also the London terminus of the Venice Simplon-Orient Express, which uses platform 2, which is the longest of the station. Victoria Station is run by John Dedross, Station Master of Network Rail.
