Dickens and London

City of London Walks: The Victorian City

Cutler's Hall Warwick Lane

       This walk explores the western half of the City of London in the Victorian era, tracing the rise of the respectable society and the gradual movement from aristocratic government to democracy.  We will also touch on the role of women in Victorian Society. 

We will meet Queen Victoria, John Wesley, John Ruskin, Charles Dickens, Benjamin Disraeli and many of other ordinary Victorians, from all walks of life.

Keeping largely to the City's network of alleyways we will see some of its jewels of Victorian architecture as well as many other iconic buildings. 

Walks start at Blackfriars Station and are led by Susan Gane. They  will last one and half to two hours and the cost is 7 per person, 6 concessions, with accompanied children under twelve free of charge.  They should be arranged in advance; the minimum group is seven people, not counting accompanied children under twelve.  Contact Susan by email here using the title Victorian City Walk.
