 London Walks South Kensington Albert Victoria and the Museums

English

The mid Victorian era was a time of keen interest in industry, inventions, science, the arts, music, poetry, commerce and manufacture. Great Britain not only held sway over a third of the world, but let the way in innovation.

The young Queen Victoria fell deeply in love with the German Prince Albert. She relied on his advice and guidance in everything, and never recovered from his untimely death from Typhoid in 1861.

The Prince Consort had a vision for Brompton Fields in South Kensington. He planned a grand avenue. There would be a museum of the arts and sciences, a huge National Gallery, museums of trade, industry and inventions. Learned societies. A concert hall.

The Victoria & Albert Museum was the only building erected in his lifetime, but although what we see now is rather different from what Albert had in mind, we owe the rich heritage of culture to his memory.

Today's walk starts at the Albert Memorial. Take the Underground to High St Kensington (Circle and District Lines Zone 1). Turn right outside the station and walk 0.6 miles along Kensington Gore. You can avoid the noise of the traffic by crossing the road and walking through the Flower Walk in Kensington Gardens.

Walk with me as I describe the Albert Memorial, Royal Albert Hall, Imperial College, Royal College of Art, Royal College of Music, Royal College of Organists, Royal Geographical Society, National Sound Archive and much more.

Links: Science Museum Geological Museum Victoria & Albert Museum

We finish at South Kensington Underground (Circle and District Lines Zone 1).
