Introduction to Victorian Architecture Susie Barson, Senior Architectural Investigator with Historic England, will introduce the architecture of the Victorian and Edwardian period through a look at the new building types, materials, technological and social changes of the period, as well as the key architects and their ideas.
Much maligned in the later 20th century, many of these buildings, such as St Pancras Hotel and Station in London, have been reappraised and are appreciated for their special qualities by many who pass by, visit, live or work in them. Come and learn about London’s rich legacy of 19th and early 20th century buildings.
