    I've searched the net but can't can't the address. Anyone know? Can you turn up and get your passport the same day? Do they charge more for this?


    Cheers

    Just behind Victoria station, a few hundred yards, will look for the address but it must be there on the web. For a passport on the same day you need to make an appointment - I did this last year. Yes, they charge a lot more for it, all on the gov website.

    London Passport Office, Globe House, 89 Eccleston Square, London. SW1V 1PN


    London Passport Office
    The London Passport Office is located in Victoria at the Globe House.
    The Georgian House Hotel is a great place to stay if you need hotel accommodation for the London Passport Office, Globe House, 89 Eccleston Square, London. SW1V 1PN. Tel: 0300 222 0000

    If you are having to travel with little or no advance notice, or you have just noticed that your passport is not in date, you may have to make an emergency visit to the London Passport Office at Globe House in Victoria. You will need to call the above telephone number to make an appointment. The passport office asks you to arrive not more than 10 minutes in advance of your time slot to avoid congestion in the office.

    Yeah passport office is behind Victoria. Walking distance from the station. Once you're in they're pretty quick. I got my passport sorted on the same day Cost a fortune mind.

    You have to make an appointment, it's right next to Victoria. If your passport is lost/stolen the same day service is not availble and you have to go for the week service.

    All on their website from what I recall, think it was £127 last year. I rang up on a monday and got an appointment for the Friday that week. Because I work in London I went in on the way to work, probably spent about an hour there, then went back sometime after lunch to pick it up. They were very pernicketty about the photo, even though I'd had it done in a specialist chemists place, it wasn't good enough - I wasn't looking into the camera apparently, but I couldn't tell..

    I did it at the booth at the passport office in the end, so wasn't too bad, I just thoguht I had done the right thing by getting it done "properly" to begin with.

    passport office london - Google Maps (click on option A for closer map)

    Victoria station is at the top of the map, directly inline with the A marker for the passport office. The apollo theatre (to the right of the station) is currently showing 'Wicked' - fantastic show, btw, and is a good marker for you to get your bearings when you come out of the station
