Although the Victorian Web concentrates on British literature, history, and culture during the age of Victoria, it includes relevant material related to both earlier and later periods. Similarly, it includes comparative materials from countries outside the United Kingdom. For example, the sections on the use of iron in architecture, railroad stations, sculpture, and painting have examples from Austria, Australia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Italy, Malaysia, Nigeria, Portugal, Vietnam, and the United States. The section on Aesthetes, Decadents, and Symbolists ranges particularly widely.
