London Off The Beaten Path: 1,701 reviews and 3,049 photos
Tucked away near the British Museum/University of London, this is a rather pretty and very short (pedestrianised) road which is so classically 'Victorian' that it is frequently used for period film location shots.
Actually, the buildings are probably very early 1800s, rather than later Victorian (you can tell by their flat roofs and sash windows) but they most certainly were part of 'Dickens' London'.
By changing the shop frontages a little, covering the cobbles with sand and carefully choosing your shot so that nothingmore modern intrudes, it's easy to see how period-appropriate the road (and the terrace adjoining it) could be.
So if you want a shot of real 'Victorian London', go to Woburn Walk. Preferably on a summer's evening, when the shops are closed and the cafe tables are packed away for the night.
