In 2012 I organised a meetup group called Dickens in London, inspired by the great novelist's bi-centenary and to take advantage of the many events that commemorated this. Victorian London is intended to extend this thread. It is a group for anyone who wants to explore Victorian London. We will visit historical buildings , museums, exhibitions and go on Victorian literary and historical walks. Possibilities include the Cummings Museum in Southwark, the newly refurbished Dickens Museum, a history tour of Wilton's Music Hall and the Florence Nightingale Museum. There are so many exciting posssibilities...  We will always end in a cafe or bar. A meetup will be arranged evey 4 - 6 weeks, usually on a Saturday or Sunday but sometimes on a weekday evening. I will usually keep the group quite  small (20 max).  If you have any ideas, please get in touch.
