A general view of the Victorian Walk Gallery with a Public House on the left and a Pawnbrokers Shop on the right.
Working men in London relaxed in the ‘pub’. It was the heart of the local community. They met with friends, played darts and attended political meetings. Children sat outside, awaiting their parents, or were sent in to buy beer for drinking at home. Many pubs had a public bar and a saloon. More comfortable, saloons were favoured by couples

The ‘Victorian Walk’ uses original shopfronts and objects from the Museum’s collection to capture the atmosphere of London life at the close of the 19th century – a shopping arcade, a barber’s, a bank manager’s and clerk’s offices, a public bar, a back alley of warehouses and workshops.
