We need you to join the Victorian Society

The Victorian Society is facing a very difficult financial situation. We have lost the income of our physical events but have been ineligible for the heritage sector corona virus funding. In addition, we have seen a sharp decline in member numbers in recent years.

If you want our vital work ensuring our priceless architectural heritage can be enjoyed by future generations to continue, join us! You can also help by leaving us a legacy in your will.

Our online system is clunky and we're working to improve it. If you experience problems please call us on 020 8994 1019 to join over the phone. Pay by Direct Debit and we'll give you £10 off your first year's membership subscription (UK bank account required).

Our campaigning has helped improve attitudes since the 1960s - but the battle to save Victorian and Edwardian buildings is far from over. Even in the 21st Century they continue to be demolished, neglected or altered beyond recognition. At a time when the whole of the planning system is being rewritten, with protection for our precious Victorian and Edwardian buildings threatened, our campaigns are more important than ever.

We cannot continue our work without members’ support through their fees.

For a small annual subscription of £51 (just £4.25 a month), or only £25 for those under 30, members receive:

  • ‘The Victorian’ magazine three times a year with engaging articles on architects and buildings, home care and maintenance advice and casework updates.
  • Issues of our journal ‘Studies in Victorian Architecture and Design’ published while you're a member.
  • Priority booking at our numerous events and lectures around the country and visits to houses not normally open to the public.
  • A monthly e-newsletter
  • The ability to take part in regional groups across the country, and most importantly,
  • The knowledge that you're supporting our fight to protect the best remaining Victorian and Edwardian architecture enabling our specialist Conservation Advisers to help local authorities and churches make the best possible decisions.

Our President, Griff Rhys Jones, explains how you can help save the best Victorian and Edwardian architecture by joining in the video above.‘JOIN THE VICTORIAN SOCIETY TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS ALWAYS A VOICE FIGHTING TO PRESERVE OUR BEST VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE.’ Griff Rhys Jones, Victorian Society President

Did you know? Our members’ donations have allowed us to help save many famous buildings for re-use such as St Pancras Station, Albert Dock in Liverpool, the Foreign Office and Oxford University Museum.
