Just a few events that I have found that might spark your interest. I will update these as more and more events come out!
Virtual Tour: Victorian London– Aug 31, 2021 at 1:00 pm (AKST)
The long reign of Queen Victoria took place between the years 1837 and 1901, a time when Great Britain was at the peak of its power and wealth. It was during this period that London became the world’s first metropolis with a population increasing from 1 to 6 million over the course of the 19th century.
Join George on this tour around Victorian London, hearing stories of the different areas and the people who lived in them. We will be taking in some famous Victorian landmarks such as Big Ben, the Royal Albert Hall while also visiting the east end to discuss the grisly Jack the Ripper murders and also a look at some of the famous culture of this era such as Charles Dickens and Sherlock Holmes.
Top hat optional!
Attendance is free but tips are appreciated.
