A time of prosperity and growth

The Victorian period lasted from 1837 until 1901; the date upon which Queen Victoria I ascended the throne until the time of her death. This period was relatively peaceful and saw the country continue to prosper economically from the Industrial Revolution. The absence of famines or epidemics, improvements in health care and living standards, and a fall in the mortality rate meant that the population doubled.

A relatively recent period of our history, the Victorian legacy offers a wonderful range of study opportunities for your school group. You may decided to visit a museum where the children can look at and read about machinery or household objects of the time, or a more immersive visit at one of the venues where the staff are living in period costume.
