London Victoria’s sneaky back entrance

There is a sneaky back entrance to London Victoria station that I've taken to using. It's near the end of Platform One, and it takes you out onto the corner of Hudson's Place and Bridge Place. It avoids all the crowds outside the main entrance to the station and on Victoria Street, and because it's much quieter, you also avoid those really annoying characters spamming you with the London Lite and other similar vacuous drivel wherever you turn on the way back in the evenings.

Obviously you still have to negotiate the crowds inside the station, but once you're out, the twenty minute walk to Millbank up Vauxhall Bridge Road, Francis Street, Greencoat Place, Greycoat Place and Great Peter Street is about as pleasant and stress free as you can possibly get in central London during the rush hour.
