There are some outstanding websites that concentrate upon historical London. Here are a selection of some of the best ones (in our opinion) organised chronologically:
- Georgian London (1714-1837) Exceptionally good Blog written by Lucy Inglis. It was was voted ‘History Website of 2009′ by the online readers of History Today Magazine, and also won the 2009 Cliopatria Award for ‘Best Individual Blog’ and ‘Best New Blog’. She is also a frequent and amusing twitterer – her twitter details are on the site. It can be a bit saucy at times, e.g. this!
- Virtual Victorian (1837 – 1901) Blog, written by Essie Fox. Not exclusively about London but it is based here and it has a lot of content about the city. Here is an example of the content – the story of Tower Bridge.
- Victorian London (1837 – 1901) Website of Lee Jackson who writes historical novels set in – you’ve probably guessed- Victorian London. I haven’t read any of his books (yet) but you don’t need to have done so to enjoy the Victoriana here. Good Links section.
- Another Nickel In The Machine (Twentieth Century)
