The Victorians 1837-1901

Victorian England The Victorian era was and age when English society was deeply religious, and superstitious. A great number of people were habitual church-goers, at least once a week and probably twice, every Sunday. The Bible was frequently and widely read by people of every class; so too were religious stories and allegories. Yet towards the end of Queen Victoria's sixty three year reign, 1837-1901 the hold of organized religion upon the English people began to ease.

The Industrial Revolution Britain became the most powerful and richest country in the world, with the largest empire that had ever existed, ruling a quarter of the world's population. The number of people living in Britain more than doubled from 16 million to 37 million, causing a huge demand for food, clothes and housing. Factories and machines were built to meet this demand as new towns grew up, changing the landscape and the ways people lived and worked. Railways , originally built to transport goods, meant people could travel easily around the country for the first time. Soldiers were at war all over the world especially in 1850 - 1880. Seaside holidays were 'invented' (became popular). Police Force 'invented'. At the beginning of the Victorian period crossing the Atlantic took up to eight weeks. By 1901 it took about a week.
