Rather than being named after Queen Victoria, as many presume, Victoria Station was actually named after Victoria Road, which is where the station was sited. It opened in 1862, in two sections; one owned by the Brighton Company, the other by the Chatham Company. Oscar Wilde dryly commented that the Brighton side was rather superior in terms of social class!
Since then, the station has been rebuilt extensively.
