RIBA Friends architecture walking tour: Victorian South Kensington

The eclectic tastes and variety of architectural styles favoured by the Victorians will be explored during this fascinating walk around South Kensington, and the area which came to be known as Albertopolis.

Join award-winning guide Paula Cooze on this tour of Victorian South Kensington, where you will see the multi-story car park of the day, gloriously over the top architecture, the humble (or not) townhouse, and the avant garde residences of the gentleman artists. You will see how the mood for change and progress shaped this area’s architecture, and how the battle between architect and engineer played out.
