Event description
An OnStreet walk exploring architecture and big urban change through the streets and landmarks of Victoria!

About this event

Dominated by the state frenzy of nearby Westminster, Victoria is a district rich with history and unique architectural traditions, yet rarely does it make it into the pages of most London guides. Once a notorious outlying marsh at the city's fringe, it boomed in the 19th century with monuments to Victorian London's thursting modernity, while in the 20th century it tore itself to pieces seeking to relaunch and rebrand for a new era. In this walk, The London Ambler looks beyond the postcard moments of the Abbey and Parliament to reveal a diverse landscape of byzantine and classical towers, Italianate town houses, multi-leveled tenements, mansion blocks and modernist townscapes.
