Arts and culture All Ages

Learn about Victorian Westminster in our new fascinating temporary exhibition showcasing selection of collections from City of Westminster Archives, toys on loan from Pollocks Toy Museum and Victorian costumes.

The exhibition celebrates the success of a series of community workshops ran in autumn 2021 by Westminster City Archives staff and volunteers. Entitled: Victorian Era – Play, Learn, Connect, it has been designed to showcase the Archives’ Victorian collections through interactions with SEND children and adults, local primary schools and Westminster libraries. The project was a great example of inclusive cultural and educational well-being provision.

The exhibition is free for general public and takes place in Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street from 7 April to 30 June.

Additionally, the archives are running a series of guided walks in April and May to explore the history of Victorian London, more information can be found by contacting [email protected]
