This article explores the way in which the history of Victorian popular culture has been rethought by historians since 2000. In the mid to late twentieth century, the social history of leisure was often shaped by Marxist assumptions and devoted to emphasising the role of social class in determining forms of pleasure. In the twenty first century historiography, class still matters but so do issues around race, gender and space.
