The Victorian era 1840 – 1910

During the 19th century, British architecture continued to influence building styles in Ireland. As Dublin missed out on much of the industrial revolution, Belfast grew and became the largest city and one of the British Empire’s great powerhouses for engineering, ship building, linen and commerce.

Notable building types: include banks, industrial buildings, church spires, mock-castles, museums, universities & statues

These are some of the most significant buildings, landmarks and monuments from the Victorian period.
