This article will talk about the Victorian Gothic architectural style and its key characteristics. This style is also known as Gothic Revival architecture and is a form of Neo-Gothic style architecture.


The Victorian Gothic architectural style started rose to prominence around the same time as the Neo-Gothic style became popular. This architectural style arose as a response to Palladianism, also known as Georgian architecture.[1]


Some characteristics of Victorian Gothic Architecture are tall spires and pointed arches, much like Gothic style architecture. Because this was a revival of the Gothic style it bears many of the same characteristics of this older style. This style of architecture is a more romanticized version of Gothic style architecture.[2]
