It was organized by Henry Cole and Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria. Charles Darwin and some famous English writers, such as Charlotte Brontë, Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll, George Eliot and Alfred Tennyson took part to the event.
The Great Exhibition was a celebration of modern industrial technology and design and it was a response to the successful French Industrial Exposition of 1844. But the Great Exhibition in London, was the very first one to be opened to international exhibitors from the entire world.
The event for “Great Britain was also an occasion to make it clear to the world the role of the United Kingdom as industrial leader. The Great Exhibition was a platform on which countries from around the world could display their achievements. It aimed at showing that technology was the key to a better future.The event was a great success. Six million people visited the Great Exhibition.
