Victorian London Alive

Date: 09 May 2013

Venue: Museum of London

Aimed at Key Stage Two students, Victorian London Alive takes place at the Museum of London and encourages school groups to take an imaginary journey back to Victorian London.

You’ll meet with one of the following characters: a street seller or photographer both set in the 1880s, or a spice and rhubarb seller of Moroccan descent, based on Henry Mayhew's book of 1851.

Each character will include information on working children and industrial and social change. Set in the atmospheric streets of the Victorian Walk, pupils will be encouraged to ask questions and interact with the characters.

The experience includes a 30-minute session plus a 60-minute self-directed visit to the Expanding City and People's City galleries. The maximum group size is 35 people.
