T O His Royal Hifftiness Prince Al^rt 
belongs the honour of originating 
a scheSribich bas the noble object ol 
hringing nations together hy the ex¬ 
tension of industry and commerce, and 
Ss in the bond, of a brother- 
hnod wrought by a means which, since 
?he wS Ss cLinenced, hath never 
been attempted-means at once so d^ 
sirable and so praiseworthy, lo stimu¬ 
late a spirit of generous rivalry, to offer 
the hand of friendship containing a pre¬ 
mium for tfve artist who excels in his 
himdicraft, without reierence to the land 
of his birth, or the political ^imosities 
and prej^OiC/e^. wHjCih Jwe all ^ooloug 
cra^nped^tha et.dAgWfr crushed the 
abUiUes ot the skilful woiwrs who supply 
the world’s wants, must have a more 
beneficial effect upon the peace and good 
will, which, for the sake of universal 
happiness and pr 06 p^i‘y» should knit 
nations togetliei, than any other eflfert 
for the same desirable end winch has 
yet been conceived. 

%earo-power, with its gigantic com- 
prebeiisiveness, has paved the way f®** 
ti^progress ot world-wisdom. Railways 
hftye caUiilit up tjie spirit, and the elec¬ 
tric telegruph uaR f^petuated it. Inter- 
r/Mminiinication is youT Only certain 
leveller of ignorwice, of prejudices, of 
anhnosities, which are the oftsprmgs of 
both; and the pi^ud eminence at which 
England has arrived is the sole conse¬ 
quence of a proper understanding, as 
well asx bold and free application of 
this principle. It becomes England, 
theretoie, tp, t^ke the initiative in this 
world-wonder; and though many short¬ 
sighted people predict that “nothing will 
come of It,” we are prepared to pin our 
faith and experience to the assurance, 
that the Great Industrial Exhibition of 
1851 is but cpeiiiiig the flood gates for a 
stream <d iutjd igence, which, \Tith re¬ 
sistless tM'g/^ willsweep away all barriers 
interpos^ by that class who liave made 
incessant struggles to stay human pro¬ 
gress, to keep buck with a wicked and a 
crueily-oppressive spirit tlve emanations 
of ibiniituble intellect, wliosc path is 
ever ouyidiU'd, in order that the selfish 
interest^ by whicii their very cxisteruAf is 
identified Rial surrounded shall he niam- 
tained even tliungU society retro¬ 

grade, aud want, misery, and a never- 
ending war of races with its altendaut

All think ug men, all rightly-consti¬

THE HOME CIRCLE-aUIDE TO LONDOIST. 


3 


Independence, tbeir comfort, and their 
true greatness, is enwoven in an enter¬ 
prising and a honourable commerce; and 
that a realization of their true hopes of 
national prosperity will sooner come to 
pass by a noble rivalry like the present, 
than were they to attempt to achieve a 
proud pre-eminence by sending their tens 
of thousands into the field of war, and 
expend their millions of blood and trea¬ 
sure—a policv, be it remarked, which has 
never failed to plunge the unhappy nation 
pursuing such a path to ‘*glory’Mnto all 
the perpiexi* ies of debt difficulties, from 
which it is long ere it can emerge. 

This great undertaking having been 
projected, a royal commission was 
appointed, and local committees formed 
to carry out the obj^•ct. Designs for the 
building were submitted from all parts 
of the world, but M r. Paxton’s design was 
chosen in preference to all others. The 
contractors for the building are iMessrs. 
Fox and Henderson, of Birmingham. 
The sum for which tiie contractors are to 
erect the building is j 6'79,800, or jd”!50,000 
if the building is retained by the Commis¬ 
sioners appointed by her Majesty. 

THE BUILDING IN HYDE PftHK. 

The dimensions of this Palace of Glass 
are 1,848 feet long, by 456 feet wide in the 
broadest part, exclusive of the machinery 
room. The height of tire principal centre 
roof is 64 feet, the adjacent side portions 
44 feet, the outer sides 24 feet, and the 
transept, which will enclose some of the 
large elm trees, is 108 feet high. 'Ihe 
space occupied on the ground floor is 
752,832 superficial feet. The total quan¬ 
tity of exhibiting surface is about 21 
acres ; but if additional space is required, 
an increased extent of 90,432 feet of gal¬ 
lery can be obtained. The total cubic 
contents of the building is 33,000,000 feet. 
The quantity of glass required is about 
900,000 superficial feet, and weighing up¬ 
wards of 400 tons. All round the lower 
tier of the building will be boarded, but 
will in every respect resemble glass. 
There are 3,300 cast and wrought iron 
columns, varying from 14 feet 6 inches to 
20 feet in length ; 2,224cast iron girders ; 
and 1,128 intermediate bearers for sup¬ 
porting the floors of galleries. The sup¬ 
ports are found, after repeated experi¬ 
ments, to be capable of sustaining five 
times the weight ever likely to be re¬ 
quired. There are 34 miles of gutters to 
carry off the water, and in no part of the 
building will the water have to run more 
than 48 feet, before it is delivered into 
the hollow columns ; but the greater part 
.will not have to run half that distance. 
The length of sash bar required is 205 
miles. The building will be exceedingly 
light, but the brightness will be tempered 
and subdued by canvass or calico cover¬ 
ing on the outside of the roof, and all the 
south side of the structure. This cover¬ 
ing will afford several advantages—it will 
protect the glass from injury by hail—it 
will subdue the li.:ht, and keep the build¬ 
ing cooler than if placed on the inside; 
and will afford facilities for lowering or 
increasing tne internal cemperamre at 
pleasure. A copious ventilation will be 
provided, four feet around the whole of 
the basement part of the building being 
made cf luffer boards, and at the top of 
each pier of lights a similar provision 
will be made, and a very copious supply 
in the centre aisle; these will all open 
and shut in the easiest possible manner 
by a very simple machinery. The tran¬ 
sept is 72 feet wnie, and 108 feet in 
height, witii a circular roof to enclose the 
large elm trees opposite Prince’s Gate. 

This iransept will be arched, Inclosing 
within it, as in a glass*case, a row of trees. 
When closed in and completed, the view 
presented by thu interior will be wonderfully 
graceful and splendid. The central avenue, 
with rows of j illars shooting off from it on 
either side, and so arranged that the eye can 
traverse freely to every part of the build¬ 
ing, must have a very ^and appearance. 


comme celle en question que de I’orgueil- 
leuse pi^eminence qu’elles pourraient 
conquerrr par leurs armies sur les champs 
de batailles au prix de leurs tresors et de 
leursang. 

Cette grande entreprise ayant ete pro- 
iet^e, une commission royale fat formee, 
et des Comit^s locaux s^organisferent 
pour en preparer I’ex^cution. Des plans 
de construction arriv^rent de toutes les 
parties du monde; mais les desseins de 
M. Paxton obtinrent la preference. 

Les soumissionnaires pour I’erection 
del’edifice,sont MlVI.Foxet Henderson, 
de Birmingham. La somme qui doit 
leur etre payee estftxee a ^79,8)0 pour 
les travaux seuleinent, independamment 
de la proprfete des materiaux ; ou 
j 6'150,000 si la Commission nomraee par 
sa Majeste juge a propos de retenir la 
propriete absolue de I’edifice.

BATIMENT DANS HYDE PARK. 

Les dln»ensions de ce palais de verre, 
Bont de l,848 pi«ds de long, sur 456 dans 
sa plus gtande largeu**, sans compter la 
salle destinee aux machines. La hauteur 
du toit principal du centre, est de 64 
pieds; celle des toils lateraux adjacents 
44 pieds; celle des autres toils lai ^raux 24 
pieds ; et le transsept, qui renfermera 
quelques uns des grands ormes du Parc, 
aura 108 pieds de hauteur. L’espace 
occupy par le rez-de-chauss^e compreud 
une surface de 752,832 pieds. La sommg 
totale de surface occup^e pa^r I’exposition, 
21 arpents; mais siunespaoe addiiioiinel 
devient n(5cessaire, une ^tendue de 90,432 
pieds de galerie pourra 6tre ajoute. l.a 
somme cubique delfespace coutenu dans 
le batiinent est de 33,000,000 |ieds; la 
quantife de verre- reqiiise, 9 )0,000 pieds 
en superrscie, pesant plus de 400 lonneaux, 
( 40 J, 0 U 0 kilogrammes.) Le pourtour de 
I’dtage inf^rieur seia lainbrisse; mais 
de telle sorte que les lambris aurout, 
sous tous les rapports, I’apparence de 
verre. Les colonnes sont au iiombre <le 
3,300 taut en fonte qu’en fer battu, ayant 
de 14 pieds 6 ponces a 20 pieds de 
hauteur ; 2,224 sommiers de fonte; et 
1,1-28 supports intermediaires pour le 
plancher des galeries. Des experiences 
repetdes ont prouve que les supports 
pourraient soutenir cinq fois le poids 
dont ils seront probablement chariies. 
Les gouttieres com portent une longueur 
de 34 inilles, ayant des tuyaux d’^coule- 
hient distants I’un de I’autre de 48 pieds 
auplus, mais geiferalement de lamoitfede 
cetespace. Lalongut-urduchassi.^acoulsse 
requisc,est de205 mines. Le b&timentsera 
exce^sivem'ent eclaire, mais Ifeclat de la 
lumifere y sera adouci par une espace de 
couverture de calico oude canevas sur la 
surface ext6-ieure du toit et le long de 
tout le cot^ irferidional ue I’^difice. Cette 
couverture pr^sentera plusieurs avan- 
tages: elle profegeia le verre centre la 
gr^le, elle temp^rera la lumiere, ihttr- 
ceptera la chaleur mieux que si elle 6iait 
fix^e a I’int^rieur. Une hauteur dc quatre 
pieds autour du bS,timent, et au sommet 
de chaque ^tage ^lant laiss^e a jour a la 
manifere des persiennes, une ventilation 
parfaite sera asaur^e; les peisiennes 
s’ouvriront et se fermeront au moyen d un 
mdcanisine trfes simple. 

Le transsept a 72 pieds de large, 108 de 
hauteur, et un toit circulaire pour ren- 
fermer les grands ormes qui se trouveiit 
en face de la Grille du lYince (Prince s 
G-ate). Ce transsept sera voffte, reu- 
fermant, comme sous un globe de verre, 
toute une rang^e n’arbres; quaiid il seia 
complet et ferrn^, la perspective de 
I’interieur sera charmante, et d’un envet 
grandiose. L’avenue centrale, avec ses 
lignes de colonnes, divergeant de chaque 
cofe, et dispos^es de fa^on que I’oeil puisse 
errer librement diirrs toutes les parties 
de I’editice, pr^sentera une apparence 
imposaiite. 

Outre I’espatc immense consacre aux 
objets g^n^raux de 1 exposition, il y aurai 
au nord du bSitiment, une salle r^servt'

4 THE HOME CIKCLE—OUIDE TO LONDON. 


Besides the immense space devotea to 
the general purposes of the Exhibition, 
there will be on the north side of the build- 
i ing a room set apart for the reception of 
I I machinery. It will be 9^6 feet long, 48 
I I feet I'.road, and 24 feet high. Another 
! i feature of the building will be the Refresh- 
I j merit Courts, which are to be divided into 
j i three classes. 

j ! From north to south, and across the 
i' breadth of the structure the flooring will 
be perfectly level, from west to east it will 
I be slightly inclined. A light iron railing 
I will enclose the buildin;? at a distance of 
eight feet from its exterior, and beyond that 
j there will be a footpath. The grand en- 
j trance will be nearly opposite the Prince's 
i Gateway, and will have seven pairs of doors. 

Ample arrangements have been made, how- 
j ever, lor the ^eotry and exit of visitors at 
i other points. About 1,500 hands are em- 
i ployed, it is estimated. 

I The new building in Hyde Park is a 
I novelty in architecture, and a novelty upon 
1 a grand scile. It is to be provided with 
many galleries, where specimens of industry 
j will be exhibited, aid where, therefore, 

; I crowds of visitors will assemble to inspect, 
i I Considering the materials used, therefore, 

; I it is most important that every care should 
! ' be taken toinsu.c the safety of these gal- 

I j leries. Blessrs. F<>x and Henderson say 
j that they have adopted every precaution in 

j I this respect, and that their calculations of 
' strength are sucii as to render an accident 
j I from the crowding of spectators impossible, j 

! j The articles to be admitted are classed 

II under the following four sections:— 
Section I. Raw Materials and Produce,—illustra- 

; tive of the natural productions on 

i which human industry is employed. 

' Sec. II. Machinery for Agricultural, Manufac- 
j taring, Engineering, and other pur¬ 

poses and Mechanical inventions,— 
j illustrative of the agents which 

I human ingenuity brings to bear upon 

j the products of nature. 

! Sec. hi. Manufactures,—illustrative of the re¬ 
sult produced by the operation of 
human industry upon natural pro¬ 
duce. 

Designs for Manufactures are to be arl- 
admitted in the same sect ion with the 
class of articles for which they are 
proposed. 

Sec. IV, Sculpture, Models, and the Plastic Art. 

generally,—illustrative of the taste 
' and skill displayed, in such applica ¬ 
tions of human industry. 

It will be understood, and may be con¬ 
ceived, that each section is capable of the 
j most extensive ramification, and that the 
! four will embody almost every species of 
handicraft upon which the ingenuity of 
I man has been directed. The last day for 
I applications for ground was on the 31st 
j of October. The building will be linished 
! upon the Ist of January, 1851, and the 
Exhibition opened to the public upon the 
1st of May, To facilitate the visits of 
the arti'/.ans from all parts of the United 
Kingdom, as well as from foreign parts, 
the Commissioners have issued the fol¬ 
lowing :— 

ARRANGE.MENTS FOR THE VISITS 

OF THK 

WORKIxNG CLASSES. 

With the view of affording information, 
a register has been opened at No. 1, Old 
Palace Yard, Westminster, by the Secre¬ 
tary of the Executive Committee for the 
Exhibition of 1851, in which will be 
entered the names and addresses of per¬ 
sons disposed to provide accommodation 
for artizans from the country whilst visit- 
ing the Exhibition next year. Copies of 
this Register of Lodgings may be had on 
application. Other arrangements are 
under consideration for guiding the 
workiiig classes on their arrival by the 
trains to the lodgings they may select.. 
The register contains a column in which 
the particulars, &c., of the accommoda¬ 
tion each party proposes to afford will 
be entered. All applications for partici¬ 
pating in these arrangements must be 
made through local committees. 

It must be clearly understood, that 
wmlst Her Majesty’s Commissioners are 
desirous of collecting the fullest informa- 


ralle aura 946 pieds de long, 48 de large, 
et 24 pieds de hauteur. Un autre ac- 
cessoire original du batiment, se trouve 
dans les cours de rafraichissements, qui 
seront divis^es en trois classes. 

Du nord au sud et danstoutela largeur 
de I’^difice le plancher sera parfaitement 
de niveau; mais de I’ouest a Test il in- 
clinera l^g^reraent. Le b&timent sera 
environne a la distance de 8 pieds par 
une grille l^g^re, audela de laquelle sera 
un sender pour les pistons. La grande 
entree fera face a la Grille du Prince; elle 
se composera de 7 portes a deux battants. 
Des mesures seront prises cependant pour 
faciliter I’entr^e et la sortie des visiteurs 
sur d’autres points. On estime que les 
travaux de construction occuperont en¬ 
viron 1,500 ouvriers. 

Le batiment dans Hyde Park est une 
nouveaut^ architecturale et une nouveaut^ 
sur une grande ^chelle. II sera pourvu de 
nombreuses galeries, oti des ^chantillons 
de produits industriels seront exposi^s 
Considerant la nature des materiaux 
employes il est done de la dernifere ini- 
portance que les soins les plus minutieux 
soient pris pour assurer la solidity de ces 
galeries. M.M. foxet Henderson assurent 
qu’on a pris k cet ^gard les plus grandes 
precautions de sorte qu’un accident 
resultant de la grande affluence des spec- 
tateurs est impossible. 

Les artic es susceptib^es d’etre admis 
sont classes dans les 4 sections suivantes: 

S/fcTioN lire. Produit et Materiaux Bruts,—ex- 
po>ant les productions naturelles 
sur lesquelles s’exerce I’industrie 
bumaine. 

Section 2e. Machines de.stinees il I’Affriculturc, 
aux M anufactures, k la Mecanique, 
&c.,—exposant les agents quu le 
genie de I homme erapluie pour 
approprier i ses besoins les pro¬ 
ductions de la nature. 

Section 3e. Objets manufactures,—exposant les 
resultats des operations de 1’In¬ 
dustrie humaine sur les produits 
nature Is. 

Les desseins pour diflTerents obje's 
d’Industrie seront admis dans la 
mime section que les articles k 
la production desquels ils sont 
de-tinis. 

Section 4e Sculpture Modfelcs, et Art* Plas- 
tiques en geniral, montrant le 
goiit et I'adresse deployes dans 
les applications de I’industrie 
humaine. 

On comprendra facilement que chaque 
section est susceptible d’une ramification 
^tendue, et que les quatre divisions ren- 
ferment k peu pr^s toutes les espfeces 
d’industrie sur lesquelles s’exerce 
Padresse humaine. Le dernier jour pour 
les demandes d’empiacement mt fix^ au 
31 Octobre, 1850. Le batiment doit fitre 
termini le premier Janvier 1851, et I’ex 
position sera oiiverte au public le premier 
Mai. Pour faciliter les visites des arti¬ 
sans de tous les points du Royaume Uni, 
aussi bien que des pays strangers, le» 
commissaires ont public ce qui suit

tion likely to be serviceable to the work¬ 
ing classes, they do not propose to charge 
themselves in any respect with the 
management, but simply to afford in¬ 
formation. 


A CONCISE 

GUIDE TO LONDON; 

SHOWING THE 

BEST COURSE TO PURSUE ON 
leaving HOME, 

and WHAT TO DO ON ARRIVING IN 
LONDON. 

raake every arrange¬ 
ment whether your journey is to be made 
singly or in parties, for your future guid- 
comfort, in as plain and straight- 
can, and keep as 
Close as circumstances will permit to the 
plan you have elected to pursue. If there 
18 a party, a clear understanding respect- 
ing monetary matters before the journey 
« indispensable for your peace and good 
and having once laid down rules 
observance, adhere to 
inem. Decide upon the locality in which 
you mean to take up your quarters until 
opportunity of a personal 
H the full hope 

and determination of being benefitted bv 
your trip. Upon your arrival at the 
Dondon railway terminus, look imme- 
diately after your luggage; and having 
obtained it, you will eitlier take a cab to 
your destination—and, if you should, 
consult our table of cab-fares—or you 
will enter an omnibus. You will see 
3- terminus whose routes lie 
in all directions. Ask the conductor of 
any one it his omnibus is going to the 
locality upon which you have determined. 

If he IS, he will hand you into his vehicle 
11 not, he will point out to you one that 
IS. If you should have a gold watch and 
chain, studs, or jewellery of any kind 
valuable, do not ostentatiously display 
It, and give a moment’s attention that 
your money is safe where you put it. The 
hurry and confusion consequent upon 
the arrival of a heavily-laden train is 
sometimes taken advantage of by dis¬ 
honest characters; and though the police 
are very attentive and alert, yet the 
thieves occasionally elude their vigilance. 
Une of the railway porters will carry your 
for you to cab or omnibus, and he 
^^^<^wed to take any fee. Your fare 
will be by omnibus 3d. or 6rf. The fares 
are painted on a large ticket inside the 
oinnibus, and you cannot be deceived: 
hut both cab drivers and omnibus con- 
cb^ge for luggage. The 
iatter usually charge sixpence, unless 
there is more than one trunk, and in that 
case one shilling will be found sufficient. 

Waving arrived at your destination, if 
a your friends, 

a post-office will be easily found in your 
hint search for one yourself, 

opon the one 
laifJi • post-office you will find a 

label giving you the number of the house.

Avant de partir, soit que vous deviez 
voyager seul ou en compagnie, prenez 
tous les arrangements necessaires a votre 
direction future et a votre bien-^tre; 
que votre plan soit aussi simple que 
possible, et suivez le aussi fid^lement que 
les circonstances vous le permettront. Si 
vous voyagez en compagnie, une conven¬ 
tion explicite relativement aux affaires 
p6cuniares est e^sentielle a votre tran¬ 
quillity, et a la bonne intelligence de la 
society. Quand une fois vous aurez adopty 
une rygle de conduite soyez-y fideie. 
Dycidez d’avance Pendroit ou vous voulez 
demeurer jusqu’ k ce que vous ayez I’oc- 
casion de choisir d’apr^s votre propre 
ppyrience, et partez avec la ferme ry^o- 
lution de profiter de votre excursion. A 
votre arrivye a Londrea occupez vous 
immydiatement de votre bagage. Quand 
une fois vous I’aurez, prenez un fiacre, 
aprys avoir consulte notre liste des prix 
qu ils ont le droit d’exiger selon les 
distances, ou montez dans un omnibus 
Informez vous d’un conducteur si son 
omnibus se dirige vers la locality que 
vous avez choisie, si tel est le cas il vous 
*®^^.hionter; si non, il vous indiquera 
celui dont vous avez besoin. Si vous 
avez une montre d’or, une chaine, des 
Doutons ou qiielqu’ autre bijou, ne les 
ytalez pas par ostentation, mais assurez 
vous que votre argent est en surety, oh 
vous I’avez mis. La confusion et la hate 
rysultant inyvitablement de I’arrivyed’un 
train nombreux, offre une occasion trop 
favorable aux filous pour qu’ils negligent 
d’en profiler; et, quoique la police soit 
alerte et attentive, les voleurs yiudent 
quelquefois sa vigilance. Un des com- 
missionnaires du chemin de fer poriera 
votre bagage au fiacre ou a I’oomibus, et 
il lui est defendu de rien prendre pour ce 
service. L’omnibus vous cOutera 6 sous, 
ou 12 sous: le prix est marquy en gros 
caractyres a I’intyrieur, ainsi vous ne 
pourrez fitre trompy a cet ygard; mais les 
conducteurs du fiacre ou de I’omuibus 
ont droit de vous faire payer pour votre 
bagage, le dernier demande rarement 
plus de 12 sous pour une seule malle ou 
un seul paquet, s’il y en a alusiers un 
shilling, ou 24 sous, suffira ordinaireinent. 

Arrivy a votre destination, si vous 
desirez ycrire a vos amis, vous trouverez 
aisyment un bureau de poste dans le voi- 
sinage; si vous voulez mettre votre lettre 
a la poste vous-m^me, regardez aux 
colonnes de ferqui portent les reverbyres 
la plus proche du bureau de poste porte 
une inscription qui vous indiquera le 
numyro de la inaison. 


Si vous n’avez pas dycidy a 1’ avance 
Ou vous voulez loger, et quy vous dyter- 
miniez pour un hotel, une auberge, ou 
un logement garni, il y en a plusieurs 
dans Jermyn Street, St. James Street, 
Albemarle Street, Bond Street, et Dover 
Street; mais ce sont des hdtels de pre- 
miyre classe et fort chers. Nous allons 
ynumyrer quelques hdtels de t»-oisiyme 
dasse: mais commeil faut,et bien tenus. 
Dans Covent Garden vous trouverez les

THE HOME CIKCLE—GUIDE TO LONDON. 


9 


September. The Gallery is wholly closed 
during: the last two weeks of September 
and the month of October. The London 
visitor must not omit viewing: this col¬ 
lection. One-half of this building is 
voted to the Royal Academy, and their 
annual exhibition of pictures is open 
from May 1 to the end of July. Ad¬ 
mission Is. 


WESTMINSTER ABBEY, 

Situated opposite to the Houses of Par¬ 
liament, in a direct line from Charing 
Cross, and about ten minutes walk dis¬ 
tant. It is a venerable piece of antiquity, 
said to have been founded by Sebert, 
King of the East Saxons, 616; rebuilt and 
completed, as it now stands, by Henry 
III. and his son, Edward I. The whole 
of our English sovereigns, from the first 
Edward to our present gracious Majesty, 
were crowned here, and many of them 
repose here in monumental splendour; 
there are also the tombs of eminent 
statesmen, warriors, sailors, poets, actors 
and actresses, musicians, divines, and 
antiquaries, besides an extensive number 
of other eminent persons. The first 
thing to do is to wait and to form a party, 
so that a guide may take you to examine 
Poet’s Corner ; then the Chapel of St. 
Benedict. There are some interesting 
tombs here. You next enter St. Ea- 
mund\t Ch tpel; thirdly, the Chapel of 
St. Nicholas; fourthly, that of the Vir¬ 
gin Mary, or Henry the Seventh’s 
Chapel. In each of these chapels the 
monuments are of the most curious and 
interesting kind. In that of Henry the 
Seventh, the altar tomb, with the effi¬ 
gies, is truly, as Lord Bacon describes 
it, one of the stateliest and daintiest in 
Europe.” The South and North 
Aisles contain tombs of remarkable 
persons. The next chapel, and fifth, is 
that of St. PauVs; the sixth is that of 
Edward the Confessor^ and, without 
doubt, is the most interesting portion of 
the building : it is called the “ Chapel of 
the Kings,” The shrine of Edward the 
Confessor is exceedingly curious and 
beautiful; the altar,tombs,and effigies are 
superb, the coronation chairs still used, 
and the screen are well worthy of the best 
attention. The next chapel is dedicated 
to St, ErasmuSy and the eighth that of 
St. John the Baptist. The ninth is that 
of Abbot Islip. The cAoir, or cross of 
the transepts, is the best spot for inspect¬ 
ing the architecture of the abbey. Tne 
guide has now fuliilled his duties, and 
departs. You should not omit to visit 
the north transept, the nave, and the 
south transept, nearly the half of which 
is occupied by Poet’s Corner. On quitting 
the abbey visit the cloisters, which you 
will find by passing through St. Mar¬ 
garet’s Churchyard (the church which 
stands contiguous to the abbey), and 
entering the Dean’s Yard, and in the 
north and south cloister you will find 
much to interest you. The abbey may 
be seen on any week days, and the ex¬ 
pense a mere trifle. Close to Westminster 
Abbey you will see Westminster Hall 
—the old hall of the palace of the kings at 
Westminster. The Law Courts of England, 
four in number, are held here in courts 
abutting from the hall itself; they are, 
the Court of Chancery, the Court of 
Queen’s Bench, the Court of Common 
Pleas, and the Court of Exchequer. 
These courts may be entered by the 
visitor, should any of them be sitting, 
without expence, the most discreet con¬ 
duct and perfect silence being essential. 
The hall is very ancient, being originally 
built in the reign of William Rufus. 

THE NEW HOUSES OF 
PARLIAMENT 


Are situated on the left bank of the River 
Thaines, near to Westminster Bridge, 
and immediately opposite Westminster 
Abbey. This “ Palace at Westminster”

minutes, est un monument v^n^rable

puis dans cede de St. Nicholas et, qua- 
tri^inement, dans celle de la Vierge 
Marie, ou d’Henri Sept. Dans toutes ces 
chapel les sont des monuments tr^s cu- 
rieux et tr^s int^ressants; dans celle d’ 
Henri VII. I’autel en forme de tombeau 
et les effigies qui I’accompagnent sont 
vraiment, comme Lord Bacon les appelle, 
les plus imposants et les plus d^Iicats 
qui existent en Europe. L’Aile M^ridio- 
nale et la Septentrionale renferment des 
tombes de personnages remarquables. 
La conqui^ine chapelle est celle de St. 
Paul; la s.xi^me, celle d’Edouard leCon- 
fesseur, est sans comredit la portion la 
plus int^ressante de tout I’edifice; on

de St. Edouard est fort belle et excessive- 
ment cui ieuse. L’autel les, tombes, et les 
effigies sont magnitiques. Les corona¬ 
tion chairs servent au couronnemeni des 
souverains Anglais, La grille est digne 
d une attention particuli^re. La chapelle 
suivaute est dedi^e a St. Erasme, et la 
huitieme a St. Jean Baptiste. La neu-

THE HOME CIECLE—aUIDE TO LONHOK 


is considered to be one of the most mag^> 
nificent buildings in Europe; and is, un¬ 
questionably, the largest Gothic edifice 
in the world. The architect is Charles 
Barry, Esq., B-A. It covers an area of 
nearly eight acres. The first stone was 
laid April 27, 1840. It has four fronts ; 
the principal, which is 900 feet in length, 
being that facing the river. There are 
three principal towers—the Royal or 
Victoria Tower, the Central Tower, and 
the Clock Tower. The Victoria Tower is 
75 feet square, and will be, when com¬ 
pleted, 340 feet high; the Grand Central 
Tower is 60 feet in diameter, and 300 feet 
to the top of the lantern, by which it is 
to be surmounted. The Clock Tower is 
40 feet square, surmounted above the 
clock with a belfry spire rising to 320 
feet. The apartments of the Speaker 
and the Sergeant-at-Arms are at the 
Westminster Bridge end, and those of 
the Usher of the Black Rod and the 
Lords’ Librarian at the opposite or 
south-west etKl. The rooms above are 
for committees of either house. The 
principal public entrances are from the 
Old Palace Yard, or Westminster Hall. 
The Royal entrance is at the Victoria 
Tower, on the right hand of which is the 
robing room; contiguous to this is a gal¬ 
lery, 110 feet in len^b, 45 feet wide, and 
45 feet high; thence ensues the Prince’s 
Chamber, and then the House of Peers. 
This is 97 feet long, 45 feet in width, and 
in iieight 45 feet. This is, perhaps, the 
most magnificent chamber in the world. 
The House of Commons is 62 feet long, 
4>5 in width, and the same in height. The 
members’ entrance is either by the public 
ones or by Star-chamber Court, which, is 
priv^ate. St. Stephen's Hail is 95 feet long 
by 30 feet wide, and 50 feet high. This 
hall is to decorated with frescoes, and the 
windows are to be of stained glass, of 
rare device. 1 he clock, in the Clock 
Tojver, is being conducted under the 
supel intendiwice of Professor Airey, the 
Royal Astronomer. It will be an eight- 
day cluck. It will strike the hours on a 
ben weighing nine or ten tons, chime 
th€ quarters on eight.bells, and will have 
foir dials, 30 feet in diameter, nearly 
doable the size of that of St. Paulas. 
Ttis magnificent building will, it is ex¬ 
pected, before it is completed, cost one 
m iliou and a half. Mode of Admission 
to Inspect the House of Lords—order 
fnoin the Lord Great Chamberlain, or 
tfe personal introduction of a peer whilst 
tie House is not sittins:. The orders are 
available only on Wednesdays, between 
ehven and four. Mode of admission to 
tte Strangers’ Gallery to hear the de¬ 
bates—a peer’s order. Mode of Admis- 
sitn to the Commons—z. member's order, 
Aiy member can give you an order. 
Tike care to keep free from the thorough¬ 
fare to the door. The House of Com- 
mms empties at seven p.m., and refills 
alout dine p.m. 

WHITEHALL. 

This was originally the palace of the 
lings of England, from Henry VIII. to 
Villiam III. All that remains is the 
binqueting-house, built by Imgo Jones. 
Tus is nearly opposite the entrance to the 
lorse Guards, and is not five minutes’ 
wdk from Charing Cross. It is considered 
tie masterpiece of Inigo Jones. In front 
<f the banqueting bouse Charles I. 
yas beheaded; at the back of the building 
sthe statue of James II. The ceiling is 
fainted by Rubens. It was converted 
nto a chapel during the reign of George I 
tut has never been consecrated. It is 
lere on Maunday Thursday, the queen’s 
tharity is bestowed on several aged men 
md women, in 17*23, the grandson of 
Miver Cromwell was here married to a 
laughter of Sir Robert Thornhill, by the 
iishop of London. 

ST. JAMES’S FARJ[. 

This park, contains 87 acres. A very 
arge proportion is railed in, tastefully 


chosur, ou croix du transsept, est Ib 
meilleur endroit pour prendre une vue 
gdn^rale de I’abbaye. Ici le guide, 
ayant accompli sa tache, vous quitte. 
iVtais vous ne devriez pas omettre de, 
visiter le transsept septentrional, la 
*ief, et le transsept meridional, dont 
presque la moiti^ est occup^e par le] 
Poet’s Corner. En quittant I’abbaye, 
visitez aussi les cloitres du cimeti^re de 
St. Margaret, dont I’eglise est contigue a 
I’abbaye. Voustrouverezen entrant dans 
Dean’s Yard, et dans les cloitres du nord 
et du sud de quoi vous int^resser. On 
peut voir I’abbaye tons les jours, et il 
n’en cofite qu’une bagatdle. Tout pr^s 
de Westminster Abbey vous trouverez 
Westminster Hall —la vieille salle du 
palais des rois ^ Westminster. Quatre 
tribunaux civils si^gent dans des cours, 
dont I’entr^e est par la salle m&ne; ce 
sont les cours de Chancery, de Queen’s 
Bench, de Common Pleas, et d’Exche- 
quer. Si quelqu’une de ces cours tient 
alors son audience, le visiteur peut entrer 
gratis; mais la conduite la plus respec- 
tueuse et le silence le plus parfait sent 
indispensables. La salle est tr^s an- 
cienne, ayant ^fe bfitie sous le r^gne de 
William Rufus. 

THE NEW HOUSES OF 
PARLIAMENT. 

Les Nouvelles Chambres sont situ^es 
sur la rive gauche de la Tamise, pr^s du

bibliothecaire de la Chambre des Lords, 
k I’extremife opposes, au sud ouest. Les 
salles|au'des:^u8 sont destin^esaux comifes 
del’uneou Pautre ci-arabre. Les princi-

salle du Prince; puis la Cluimbre des 
Pairs, ou House of Peers. Cette derni^re

de fresques et les crois^es seront en

ance au Professeur Atrey, astronome 
royal, marchera huit jours, et frappera

Here you will notice the statue of 
Charles /., 'I rafalgsir Square and loun- 
tains, with Nelson’s Column, and the 
statue of George IV. Journeying east¬ 
ward you will pass down the istraim; 
turn down Hungerford Street, which 
will be on your right hand, and take 
a look at Hungerford \lARKET,and the 
Hungerford Suspension Bridge— 
it is lor foot passe-.igeis only. It was 
constructed hy 1. K. Brunei, and wav 
opened in April 18, 1845. It consists of 
three arches; the span of the centre is 
676 feet 8 inches, 'i'he height of the 
roadway from iii^h-water mark at the 
abutments is 22 feet 6 inches ; at the 
pier^, 28 feet; and in the centre, 32 feet. 
The clear width of the roadway is U feet, 
and the height of the two towers, or piers, 
which carry the chains, is 58 feet above 
the road. The first stone was laid in 1841; 
and the total cost, including the purchase 
of property, parliarnentarv, law, and other 
expenses, was ^6*110,000. All the wood 
employed in the construction is Paynized, 
and the quantity of iron consumed be¬ 
tween 10,u00 and 11,000 tons. From here 
you will have a good view of Waterloo 
Bridge, which is considered the noblest 
bridge in the wor.d. It is built all of 
granite, is, perfectly level, is 2 456 feet in 
length, ami cost one ttiiihon ot money. 
John Rennie was the engineer. It was 
opened on the I8th of June, 1817. Re¬ 
turning to Uie ritrand, and continuing 
down It, you will come to Somerset 
House. It is a magnificent pile of build¬ 
ings, and will well repay inspection. Here 
is the School ot Design, the Society of

THE HOME CIKCLE—aUIDE TO LONDON. 


TEMPLE BAR AND CHTTRCH. 

TEMPLE BAR is a ^jateway which 
divides the Strand from Fleet Street, 
and also the City from the Shire. There 
has been a gate here many years; the 
present was built by Sir Christopher 
Wren, in 1670. This gate is closed 
by the City authorities whenever the 
Queen pays the City the honour of a visit. 
It is not closed at any other time. A 
few paces through the bar, and the first 
turning on the right, will lead you into 
the Temple. It originally was the habita¬ 
tion of the Knight Templars, from whom 
it takes its name; it is now the abode of 
lawyers. The Church, built in 1185, is 
divided into two parts, the Round Church 
and the Choir, which was not added until 
1240. The church was restored, altered, 
and beautified, at a cost of .:670,000, in 
1839-42. Leaving this, you w;I! pass 
down Fleet Street, proceed up Ludgate 
Hill, and come to 

ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL. 

The entrance is at the north door. Di¬ 
vine service is performed daily at 8 in 
the morning in the chapel, at ^ before 10 
in the choir, and in the afternoon at ^ 
past 3 in the choir. The doors are opened 
i of an hour before the beginning of each 
service. Visitors are admitted to see the 
building except during the time of divine 
service. Cost of Admission .—To view 
the Monuments and body of the Church 
2d.; Whispering Gallery and two outside 
Galleries, 6d.; Ball, is. 6d.; Library, 
Great Bell, Geometrical Staircase, and 
Model Room, Is.; Clock, 2d.; Crypt and 
Nelson’s Monument, Is.; total, 4s. 4d. 
The length of the cathedral, from east to 
west, is 500 feet; breadth of the body of 
the church. 500 feet; campanile towers 
are each 222 feet high; and the height of 
the whole building from the pavement to 
tJje top of the cross, is 404 feet. The 
whole cost was ^£“747,954 2s. 9d. It was 
paid by a tax on coals. The interior is 
highly interesting; the Whispering Gal¬ 
lery, and the ascent, though trying, is 
repaid by a splendid view of London Irom 
the outer gallery. Leaving St. Paul’s, 
you proceed down Cheapside, where you 
will have at one view the BANK of ENG¬ 
LAND, the MANSION HOUSE, and the 
Royal exchange. The inspection 
of the first, which is the principal bank 
ot deposit and circulation in Europe 
(it was altered, and in most part rebuilt* 
by Sir John Soane,) will satisfy alaudable 
curiosity. A visit to the Royal Ex¬ 
change will be well i;epaid; and one to 
the Mansion House, to hear the Lord 
Mayor adjudicate upon the cases of civil 
and criminal law brought before him. 

Put a short distance from the Mansion 
House, hewing round to the right, and 
left, is theMONU- 
MENT, on lish-street Hill. This is a 
fluted column of the Doric Order, raised 
to commemorate the Great Fire of Lon- 
^n. It was desigtied by Sir Christopher 
Wren and completed in 1677, for the 
sum of ^13,700. It is 202 feet high - R 
contains inside a staircase of 315 steos 
1 he admittance is from nine till dai^ • 
a^dmission, 6d. Six persons have cast 
tliernselves from the top at different 
periods, but an iron caging now runs 

Tnu of his sons 

John Rennie and George Rennie, ihe 
first stone was laid June 15, 1825, and 
the bridge opened by King William IV 
jnd Queen Adelaide, on the 1st of 
Ajust, 1831. It is*built Of granit?

fibta! ning an order from the Master. It 
is no ; transferable, and can only be used 
on tl e day which it bears date. The name 
at^ iddress of the person requiring ad- 
niCTon must be given ; if a party, the 
numi )er must be stated, and one person 
be~Bsponsible for the whole. The dif-

trouve le Monument, dans Fish Street; 
e’est une colonne cani.elde d’ordre Do-

THE HOME CIECLE—OUIDE TO LONDON. 


Hall, and the Round Tower, from the 
top of which twelve counties can be seen, 
and the many erections, forming a grand 
and imposing scene, render the visit of 
the most interesting description. St. 
George’s Chapel, at Windsor, must also 
be visited. The interior is very perfect. 
The puVilic are admitted Tuesdays, 
Thursdays, and Saturdays, from ten to 
} four, to view the Castle by ticket, to be 
had at Ackermann’s, 96, Strand, but the 
guide expects a gratuity. 

HAMPTON COTJRT PALACE 

stands on the northern bank of the 
Thames, 12 miles west of London. The 
fares, by theSouth W,estern Railway, are— 
first class, 2s. 6d.; second class, Is. 9d.; 
third class. Is. The manor is very old, 
being willed in 1211 to the Knights Hos¬ 
pitallers of St. John of Jerusalem, by 
whom it was leased to Cardinal Wolsey, 
in the reign of Henry Vlll.; in 1515 he 
rebuilt it in a splendid manner. It has 
passed in succeeding centuries through 
varieties of hands, until it has come into 
those of the people, whom we trust will 
not, as has been rumoured, be deprived 
of it. The Great Hall, the Guard 
Chamber, the King’s Grand Staircase, 
the Presence and Audience Chambers, 
the King’s and Queen’s Bedrooms, her 
Majesty’sGallery,the Public Dining-room, 
the Queen’s Private Chapel, the Gardens 
and Park are to be seen. There are two 
remarkable features—the first is the Vine, 
which is supposed to be the largest in 
the world: it is above 110 feet long; 
near the ground the stem is nearly three 
feet in circumference ; in a prolific sea¬ 
son it produces more than 2,500 bunches 
of grapes. The second curiosity is the 
Maze; it is the source of much fun and 
enjoyment. Steam-boats from London 
come here has well as covered vans, the 
latter charging the moderate fare of 
Is. 6d. there and back. 

DULWICH COLLEGE, situated at 
Dulwich, about nine miles from London, 
contains a fine collection of pictures by 
the old masters, bequeathed by Alleyn, 
an actor. The College gives shelter to a 
number of aged men, whose qualifica¬ 
tions tor entrance rest chiefly upon their 
being exactly the same name as the 
founder. 

LONDON 

is situated on the banks of the Thames, 
and is in four counties—Middlesex and 
Essex on the north of the Thames, Surrey 
and Kent on the south. The north side 
comprises an area of 43 square miles ; the 
south is 8 square miles. The population 
is upwards of 2,200,000. The m^st impos¬ 
ing entiance into London is from the 
London Bridge Railway Station. It at 
once conveys a strong impression of the 
vast riches and commerce of the largest, 
the wealthiest, best-drained, and best 
lighted city on the globe. 

We have now taken the stranger to 
the most important places in this vast 
metropolis. It is needless to say that 
there are many places worthy of being 
seen not included in this list, but there 
are few of them which cannot be seen 
during the progress to those which we 
have pointed out. Out of the vast num¬ 
bers of visitors, by whose presence Lon¬ 
don will be honoured on this grand 
occasion, the stay of a very considerable 
number will necessarily be limited, and 
we cannot therefore too strongly point 
out the importance of an economy of 
time—plan out the route it is intended 
shall each day be taken, and as near as 
possible follow it out, or you may return 
without having seen one-half you hoped 
or expected. In conclusion, we say to 
all our readers, we greet you with a hearty 
welcome to London; sincerely hoping that 
your trip will be pleasant and profitable, 
and that at your safe return home you 
will look back upon all the circumstances 
connected with your journey, with the 
most perfect satisfaction. 


prds de Vauxhall Bridge: et CRE» 
MORNE GARDENS, prds de Battersea 
Bridge. Les deux derniers consistent 
principalement en spectacles en plein air. 
Le prix d’entr^e pour le Vauxhall est de 
2s. 6d.; celui de Cremorne Garden, Is. 

WINDSOR CASTLE 

{Chateau de Windtor) 

est situ^ a 21 milles de Londres. On pent 
y aller par le Great Western Railway, ou 
par le South Western, de la station de 
Waterloo, dans Waterloo Road. Le cha¬ 
teau est le plus splendide monument de 
ce aenre en Europe. C’est la residence 
habituelle de sa Majesty. Les sal les de 
reception offrent des modules de magni- 
fique decoration. Les plafonds peints, 
les portraits, les raeub'es, les armes et les 
figures armees, la Salle de St. George et 
la Tour Ronde, du soinmet de laquelle la 
vue embrasse 12 comtes, et les diverses 
constructions, forment une seine grande 
et imposante, et rendent cette excursion 
tris intiressante. La Chapelle de George 
k Windsor doit aussi Stre vue. L’inti- 
rieur en est parfait. Le public est admis 
les Mardis, Jeudis, et Samedis, de 10 
aeures k 4. Les billets sont dilivris 
4 :ratis par Ackerman, No. 96, Strand j 
mais le guide s’attend k un pour-boire. 

HAMPTON COURT 
PALACE 

est situi sur la rive septentrionale de la 
Tamise k 12 milles k I’ouest de Londres. 
Les prix par le South Western Railway 
sont:—Ire classe, 2s. 6d.; 2nde classe, 
Is. 9d.; 3ime classe, Is. Le ch^lteau est 
tris vieux. II ffit ligui 1211 aux che¬ 
valiers hospitaliers de St. Jean de Jerusa¬ 
lem, par lesquels il fut loui au Cardinal 
Wolsey, sous le rigne de Henry VIII.; 
en 1515 il le rebitit d une maniire mar- 
nifique. La grande salle des gardes, Te 
grand escalier da roi,le8 salles d’audience 
et de reception, les charabres k coucher 
du roi et de la reine, la galerie de sa 
Majesti, la grande salle a manger, la 
chapelle particuhire de la reine, les jar- 
dins, et le pare miritent d’etre vus. On y 
trouve deux choses remarquables: la Ire 
est une vigne probablement la plus grande 
dll monde; elle a plus de 110 pieds de 
long; le cep pris de la terre a pris de 3 
pieds de circonfirence. Dans unesalson 
abondante cette vigne produit plus de 
2500 grappes. La Qnde curiosite est le 
labyrinthe—cause de beaucoup de plai- 
santeries et d’amuseraent. Les bateaux 
k vapeur de Londres vont k Hampton 
Court, aussi bien que des chars converts 
pour le prix modeste d’un shilliug et six¬ 
pence pour I’aller et le retour. 

DULWICH COLLEGE. 

Situi a Dulwich, environ deux milles 
de Londres, renferme une belle collection 
de tableaux des anciens maitres, liguis 
par I’acteur Alleyn. Le collige sert 
d’asyle k. un nombre de vieillards, dont le 
titre d’admission consiste principalement 
dans la resemblance exacte de leurs 
noms avace celui du fondateur 

Nous avons maintenant conduit I’etran- 
ger dans tons lieux les plus importants 
de cette vaste metropole. Il est inutile 
d’ajouter qu’ il y a bien des endroits 
digues d’fitre vus qui ne sont pas com- 
pris dans cette liste. Dans la foule des 
yisiteurs qui honoreront Londres de leur 
presence, un tr^s grand nombre n’y fera 
n^cessairement qu’un s^jour trfes limits, 
nous ne pouvons trop recommander a 
ceux-l^ debien Economiser le temps. 
Pour conclure, nous souhaitons la bien- 
venue a tous nos lecteurs, espErant sin- 
cErement que leur excursion sera aussi 
agrEable que profitable, et qu’ils retour- 
neront sains et saufs chez eux, emportaiit 
un agrEable souvenir de leur voyage.
