Architecture Walking Tour: South Kensington

Explore Victorian South Kensington with RIBA Friends and Blue Badge guide Paula Cooze

Join award-winning Blue Badge guide Paula Cooze for a tour around Victorian South Kensington. Discover the impact of the aesthetic movement, the introduction of garden squares and the development of arts and crafts. Paula will show you the multi-storey car park of the day, gloriously over-the-top architecture, the humble (or not) town house, and the avant-garde residences of gentlemen artists. See how the mood for change and progress shaped the development of this area.
