Virtual Victorians

Welcome to the home of the Virtual Victorians. Here you can take a look at a typical week in our lives and ask us questions.
In the "Themes Gallery" you can see many of the things we use, and some things that we would like to be able to afford to use! You can even play with some of the children's favourite toys!
You can find out more about our legacy to you, send something they are calling an 'eCard', whatever that is, and if you like news you can work on a Victorian Newspaper.
