Victoria Street (Simplified Chinese: 维多利亚街, Traditional Chinese: 維多利亞街, Pinyin: Wéiduōlìyǎ Jiē; Hokkien with Taiji romanisation: Jee33 Bae1lor33, meaning "Second Road") is one of the main streets in Singapore. Named after Queen Victoria (1819-1901), it starts at Rochor Canal, across Victoria Bridge, where it continues as Kallang Road. It then continues in the southwest direction to end at the intersection with Stamford Road, after which it continues as Hill Street.

Along its route, Victoria intersects with Jalan Sultan, Jalan Kubor, Arab Street, Ophir Road, Rochor Road, Middle Road and Bras Basah Road. It also forms junctions with a number of small roads including Jalan Klapa, Jalan Kledek, Jalan Pisang, Jalan Pinang, Victoria Lane, Cheng Yan Place, Manila Street, Bain Street, and Miller Street.

As one of the early streets of the British settlement, Victoria Street has undergone a name change at least twice. In the earliest map of Lieutenant P. Jackson of 1822, the street was referred to as Rochor Street. However, in the later map by G.D. Coleman in 1836, it appeared as Marbro Street.

Victoria Street was known among the Hokkien in Singapore as Au33 Bae1 Chia3 Lor33, meaning "behind the horse-carriage way" - in reference to its location to the back of North Bridge Road.
