You ask what we are doing?

We are going to show you what the Victorians did on their free time or what they wanted to do for fun or if they just wanted to play.

Some games (and board games) they played include:

-Chess

-Backgamman

-Darts

-Draughts (Checkers)

-Cricket

-Croquet

-Bicycling

Where did Victorian children play?

Many children worked in the Victorian times, but they still had time to have fun.


Outdoors, most Victorian children played in the streets and in the woods. Not many families had gardens big enough to play in, and there were no playgrounds. Rich families had playrooms or nurseries, but poorer children played wherever they could find space.
