Walking Tour

The Great Exhibition, 1851


Discover the story of the Great Exhibition of 1851 through the medium of "The Head Gardener, the Victorian Housewife, the Queen and her Consort", as we enjoy a stroll through beautiful Hyde Park and the lovely residences of South Kensington. We will meet the big players behind the Exhibition, review the site where the magnificent "Crystal Palace" stood, examine the diversity of the exhibits, and the novelties of the day from grand opening ceremony to lasting legacy on the domestic and cultural front.



Our Walk starts just inside Hyde Park by the Marlborough Gate entrance,  Bayswater Road, nearest tube is Lancaster Gate (Central Line). We finish approximately 1 hour 30 minutes later, by the Albert Memorial or the V&A (as preferred).
