Now, more than ever, we need new members to support our fight to save Victorian and Edwardian buildings for future generations! Join online or call us on 020 8994 1019. Already joined? Please consider leaving us a legacy in your will.

The battle to save Victorian and Edwardian buildings is far from over. They are still being demolished, neglected or altered beyond recognition. Our campaigning has improved attitudes since the 1960s but our voice is more important than ever as the planning system is being rewritten, threatening protection for our precious Victorian and Edwardian buildings.

We all wish we could do more to save the historic buildings we care about. Join us and let us do the fighting for you. Members’ financial support pays for our specialist Conservation Advisers who push local authorities and churches to protect our heritage.

For £56 (£4.95 a month), or only £25 (£2.50 a month) for those under 35, members receive:

  • ‘The Victorian’ membership magazine three times a year with articles on architects and buildings, home care and maintenance advice and details of our casework battles.
  • Priority booking for our events and lectures around the country and visits to places normally closed to the public all of which often sell out.
  • The ability to take part in regional groups across the country
  • Issues of our journal ‘Studies in Victorian Architecture and Design’ published while you're a member, and
  • The ability to share news or ask questions in our monthly e-newsletter.

Victorian Society President, Griff Rhys Jones, explains how your membership helps save Victorian and Edwardian architecture in the video above: ‘JOIN THE VICTORIAN SOCIETY TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS ALWAYS A VOICE FIGHTING TO PRESERVE OUR BEST VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE.’
