The Victorians lived over 150 years ago during the reign of Queen Victoria. At this time, Britain became the most powerful and richest country in the world and ruled a quarter of the world’s population. With these changes and expansions, the Victorian era was a time of huge change in the lives of British people.  Life was also very different for children at this time. 

Learn more about the lives of Victorians at work and at play. Have a go at making Victorian inspired visual illusion toys.
