Dragging a bulky suitcase around London while waiting for your train could be a real nightmare.

We’ve created this simple guide to show you the best left luggage facilities in London.
Left luggage at Liverpool Street Station
Imagine leaving your apartment or hotel early in the morning and having plenty of time to explore the city before your train.
It seems great, but the only problem is that cumbersome suitcase to lug! Everyone experienced this situation at least once in a lifetime, that’s why we wanted to list some excellent luggage storage options in London.
Once you’re free from heavy loads, you can do whatever you want, like visiting museums, renting a bike or just strolling smoothly through the bustling streets of London.
If you’re leaving from Liverpool Street station, you’ll find a luggage storage office near platform 10. It’s managed by Excess Baggage, which provides left luggage facilities at main train stations and airports across the UK.
The storage point at Liverpool Street Station is open from Monday to Sunday (from 7 am to 11 pm). There is no need to book in advance, you can enter the storage point directly and pay upon collection (it costs £12,5 per bag per day).
Keep in mind that all your bags will be scanned through a security screening machine before being stored. Also, the staff may request to open your bags for a mandatory security hand search.
Radical Storage – a new way of storing bags!
In addition to self-service lockers or traditional left luggage facilities at train stations and airports, now you can find several companies using a system like Airbnb’s.
Let’s try to clarify how it works. In the same way as people rent rooms or their houses for a short time, you can now find local businesses ‘renting’ their free space to keep luggage for a few hours or days. Companies such as Radical Storage provide a website platform and an app that help you find these places and book your space.
Specifically, you need to enter the website or download the Radical Storage App and enable your geolocation (or type a specific location). You’ll see a list of all luggage storage facilities available. Each storage location could be different; for example, it could be a hotel, a restaurant, or a shop. All you have to do is to choose one and proceed with the online payment (it costs £5 per bag per day). At the end of the procedure, you’ll receive the storage location’s address and a QR code to show at check-in.
Most storage facilities allow only suitcases and bags, but Radical Storage partners will store bulky suitcases, pushchairs, and other large items.
