Victoria tube station, Victoria Line, ceramic tiles
In the late 1960s, London Transport appointed a collective of designers, artists and architects who designed all aspects of the Victoria Line. The distinctive designs in each platform seat recess on all of its 16 stations provided much needed colour and decoration and gave each stop its own visual identity. The results were a mixture of direct inspiration from the station name and references to historical details of the local area.

The design for Victoria is by Edward Bawden (1903-1989) LinkExternal link ; it features a silhouette of Queen Victoria by Benjamin Pearce (the Elder) LinkExternal link .

Bawden also designed the ceramic tiles for Highbury & Islington TQ3184 : Highbury & Islington tube station, Victoria Line, ceramic tiles and Tottenham Hale stations TQ3489 : Tottenham Hale tube station - ceramic tiles.
