And although the last mentioned puts Britain at the forefront of Victorian creativity, in literature particularly, Margaret Drabble believes that the single biggest and possibly most important discovery of the 19th century was Darwin's discovery of the theory of evolution.

Victorian Britain – women’s fashion. In 1881 the Act was made applicable throughout the country. This changed in the later years when light gowns were made, making it a little comfortable for women to wear them.
