There are a few reasons why you might need to store your luggage while you are in London.
Of course, if you are booked into The Piccadilly London West End, your arrival time is not quite synced with your check-in time, yet the lights of Piccadilly Circus are calling you…you’re more than welcome to store your heavy hunk of a suitcase with us. No need to arrange it ahead of time! Just drop it off prior to check-in and we’ll take good care of it until you’ve finished exploring and are ready to relax.
Likewise, if you are leaving London later in the day, but need to check out in the morning and want to explore the local tourism, leave your bags with us and come back before catching your train or flight.
Business travellers can make the most of our corporate accommodation in London, too! If you have a presentation to give or a meeting to attend before you check-in or after you check-out, but would prefer not to do with your socks and pyjamas in tow, we’ll watch your things while you’re moving an shaking.
It’s clear that guests of The Piccadilly London West End won’t have a problem with bag storage, but what about everyone else?
If you are ever in doubt and somehow without a means of researching what to do, a train station is always a good bet – even if it is just a starting point for asking an information desk where to go. The people manning these desks are beacons of local knowledge relating to tourism, so you can trust them to offer a sound solution for your situation. As people who have travelled in London before will have experienced, there are plenty of train stations, but a lot that are tiny – just about offering a platform, let alone luggage storage facilities. So, it is mainly the bigger stations where you will find success – especially those with Overground and National Rail links. Here are train stations in London that offer luggage storage services:
- Charing Cross: Main concourse, 7am – 11pm
- Euston: Platform 16-18, 7am – 11pm
- King’s Cross: Main concourse, 7am – 11pm

After all, if you have some time to enjoy London before or after checking in, it would be a waste to miss out simply because of your luggage. It is always worth checking with your hotel if they have any storage facilities because while the suggestions above are great alternatives, the easiest route is always to leave your bags where you plan on unpacking them.
