How long does it take to walk from Victoria Station/Victoria Underground Station to the Oval Cricket Ground (The Kia Oval)?
It takes about 20 minutes. Directions: From Victoria, walk along the Vauxhall Bridge Road (east of Victoria Station) to Vauxhall Bridge (it is one straight route). Carry on walking straight ahead, thus crossing the River Thames via Vauxhall Bridge. On the other side of the Bridge, cross Albert Embankment; the street forks into Kennington Lane and Harleyford Road. Walk down Harleyford Road towards Kennington Oval. The Cricket Ground is easily seen.

The ART DECO STYLE of architecture, an imposing building style, was popular especially after the Paris Exhibition 1925 and in the wake of the discovery of Tutankhamon’s tomb – its straight, practical layout being quite the opposite of the preceding ornamental Art Nouveau style.
