Primary school resources to support the teaching of the Victorians.

The Victorian era in British history was the time during which Queen Victoria reigned. She was Queen from 1837 until 1901.

A lot of change happened in Britain during Victorian times – many machines were invented and there were great advancements in science and technology. The Industrial Revolution was happening and Great Britain became the British Empire.

Many of the artefacts in this collection are original. They have been sourced from antique and re-enactment markets. The collection provides a facinating display as well as an insight into the lives of our Great-Great-Great Grandparents.

The Florence Nightingale & Mary Seacole and The Victorian Collections may be purchased together at a reduced rate of £750.
