The Victorian Britain
The Victorian era stretched from the 20th of June in 1837 when Queen Victoria was names ruler of the land, to the 22nd of January 1901 when she passed away. The Victorian era was describes as a long period of peace, and a time of national self-confidence, refined sensibility and prosperity for the people of Britain.
You don't have to travel very far once you are in Britain if you want to see a remarkable piece of Victorian history because the country has preserved so much from that era. In fact many of the houses that still stand in the UK were built in the Victorian times, some of which are nestled among new builds even in the middle of the town centers! It is quite amazing to see actually. You could be walking through a bust city center and right between two high street shops or blocks of flats you will see a beautiful cottage style home originating from the mid 19th century.
Many Victorian built homes are registered as listed buildings, meaning that they belong to the country and are not allowed to be adapted. You will see a lot of homes that are beautifully kept on the outside but with new and modern features on the inside to keep up with the modern society that we now live it. Britain prides itself of restoring this beautiful era and hopes to keep it in all of its beauty for many years to come.
Of course it is lovely to walk past peoples houses and admire their beauty but it would be a bit intrusive to ask to look inside. It's a good thing, therefore, that here are loads of places that you can visit in Britain if you want to have a real explore of the Victorian history. Britain is full to the brim of churches, castles, museums and other historical sites where you can really get a sense of Victorian beauty at its finest.
