In 1837 Princess Victoria became Queen of a nation whose trade and manufacturing had blossomed because of the Industrial Revolution and the establishment of the British Empire. But this success had a human cost.

This is an exploration of Victorian philanthropy in the dark area that clung to the northeastern corner of the City, a story of soup kitchens and slum clearance. Wash houses and galleries appeared alongside model dwellings and refuges.

Meet outside Aldgate Underground Station, Aldgate High Street.

The tour will finish approximately two hours later on Bishopsgate, near Liverpool Street Station. For information on travel, please use Transport for London's Journey Planner.
