Elisabeth Prescott Ashton takes you back to a Victorian Middle class home. With the help of her family and staff, she escorts you through the house. She also goes into great detail about Victorian culture, etiquette, pursuits and even takes you on walking tours through London. There is also a large list of links and bibliography for the truly serious researcher. And once you have become an expert you can download your very own Honorary Victorian Certificate!
This is a fun site with an almost game like feel. (Kids would love it.) However the creator, Betty Malheiro, has taken great pains to be thorough and accurate on the Victorian era. You feel like you really have time traveled.

Lisa’s knowledge of the era is phenomenal. She has been collecting antiques and reading on the period since she was a little kid. But rather than just showing off her own talent she also brings others onto the program to share their own collections and expertise. Each show narrows in on subject such as Victorian superstitions, fashions and accessories. She has already promised us more. I can’t wait!
