Laxey Wheel on the Isle Of Man.
This feat of Victorian engineering and ingenuity is the largest surviving waterwheel of its kind in the world. The Lady Isabella as she is also known, served the mine for 70 years and became the Island’s most dramatic tourist attraction

Dame Judy Dench as Queen Victoria in one of the most iconic British gowns of all time. Seriously. This black on black on black look is so recognizable, easily placing the viewer in a specific time and place. The costume Ali Fazal wore as Abdul Karim is spectacular. The juxtaposition of the two speaks to their relationship well. This was a beautiful surprise in the exhibit. .

Rainy days call for new reads. ☔📖 Picked up A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn after seeing it posted all over the instawebs. I've never read a Veronica Speedwell mystery before, so I'm looking forward to diving in. Anyone else read this one?

Side note - I originally bought this hat a few years ago when my Downton Abbey fervor was at its height. Makes me feel like I could step back in time when I wear it. 😍 👒

Ice cream yum, straight down my tum! The lure of ice cream was big with these London kids even back in 1876 #amwriting #kidlit #eastendlife #victorianengland #icecreammuseum

I feel like I just stepped out of a Dickens novel! So far I have the corset, tucked petticoat, chemise, and pantaloons done for my 1830/40s undergarments, and of course the bonnet. I only have a corded petticoat left, and then, of course the dress. #handmade #historicalcostuming #charlesdickens #1840s #victorianengland #victorianfashion

When Queen Victoria visited Bristol in November, 1899, she was met by crowds of up to 60,000 people, eager to get a glimpse of Britain's longest reigning monarch. However, they were disappointed as she chose to spend the entire day in her carriage and was almost entirely obscured from view behind curtains. She even cut the ribbon to open Queen Victoria Hospital in Clifton from within her carriage and later in the day knighted Lord Mayor Herbert Ashman in Corn Street by leaning out of her carriage window with her sword. No explanation was ever given for her odd behaviour but it's likely that the 79 year old queen, who had grown uncomfortable with large crowds found the inside of her carriage preferential to a blustery, unseasonably cold day on the streets of Bristol!

So, I am planning to pick up Middlemarch next week as part of the #middlemarching readalong hosted by @the.imperfect.library and @ab_reads. This classic, set in 19th century England, is nearly 1,000 pages long and I hope I make it! 😱 It will be great to tackle one chunkster on my TBR every year (other future targets are War and Peace, The Count of Monte Cristo, Gone With The Wind and Infinite Jest). _

I’ve heard from classics fans who refer to Middlemarch as their favourite book of all time. Others have described it as challenging and intimidating. I’m really curious to give it a go myself!

Have you read this? Are you planning to? (No spoilers please! 😊)

❝We're not courting trouble," I say. "Flirting with it, at most.❞ - 📖 A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE by Mackenzi Lee

I didn't expect this book to pack in as many issues as it did but it didn't feel forced - I really liked the weight of it in a historical context that didn't take itself too seriously. It felt like a YA Contemporary set in Victorian England. I found the characters complex and compelling and wanted to read more about their relationships so while I don't have complaints about the adventure side of the novel, I wanted to just read more about the backstory and feelings of Percy, Felicity, and Monty. // ★★★★ out of 5 ⚓
❝God bless the book people for their boundless knowledge absorbed from having words instead of friends.❞

❝There is nothing good about watching another man claim your ship because your skin is too dark to do it yourself.❞

❝A small shift in the gravity between us and suddenly all my stars are out of alignment, planets knocked from their orbits, and I’m left stumbling, without map or heading, through the bewildering territory of being in love with your best friend❞

❝Do you know how horrid it feels to watch my brother get tossed out of the best boarding school of England, then get to travel the Continent as a reward, while I’m stuck behind, not permitted to study the same things or read the same books or even visit the same places while we’re abroad, just because I had the bad luck to be born a girl?❞

Buckingham Palace may get more attention, especially with a royal wedding coming in May, but the 500-year-old, Hampton Court Palace is one of the most interesting historical attractions in London that harkens back to Victorian England in the Dickens' Village Series.

На самом деле, во времена Королевы Виктории не существовало особого стиля оформления детских. Для них выбиралась такая же, как для взрослых, мебель. Об удобстве малышей особо не задумывались. Что точно тогда было, это - колыбели (один из самых древних предметов мебели в мире), деревянные лошадки (не менее древние) и сундуки для игрушек. В нашем викторианском домике все эти предметы в наличии;) На конкурс @agzamova.nastena и @agzamova.nastena #англия_моими_глазами
