Event description

Description

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 lawless 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 to rebrand and remake for a new era.

In this walk, The London Ambler looks beyond the postcard moments of the Abbey and Parliament to reveal an urban underdog, a diverse and fertile district of byzantine and classical towers, Italianate town houses, multi-leveled tenements, mansion blocks and modernist townscapes.

A walk by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe.
