Between Buckingham Palace Road and Lower Grosvenor Place is this cute place called “Victoria Square”.
Victoria Square was built in 1839 and named after the new queen. Victoria was only 18 when she became queen and there is a statue in the square (mde in 2007) of her at the start of her reign, wearing typical fashions from the time.
Despite recent renovations, Victoria Square includes some Victorias features: Coal holes, tiled doorsteps, boot scraper and cast-iron railings. Originally railings were painted in different colours, but many were painted black following the death of Prince Albert, Victoria’s husband in 1861. The houses are typical Victorians layout – the servant’s quarters would have been in the attic and the kitchen in the basement, with the families’ rooms in between.
