What is a Victorian Conservatory and how much will it cost?

Victorian conservatories are the most ornate style of conservatory, featuring attractive bay fronts, steeply pitched roofs and period detailing. This style of conservatory typically costs between £11,000, and £24,700, depending on the size of the conservatory, the type of roofing material used, and the amount of building work required.

Design Characteristics of  Victorian Conservatories

 There are a number of design features that can be incorporated into a Victorian style conservatory, including crests, finials, leaded and even stained glass windows. So if you want to create an extension that is unique to you then this style of conservatory is a good option.

Victorian conservatories have a rectangular base with a curved front comprising of between three and seven faceted windows, these give the conservatory an attractive exterior appearance. Inside the curved frontage will allow you to enjoy panoramic garden views.

  • Cost Considerations
  • Do You Need Planning permission?

Traditional styling is the main reason that people opt for this type of conservatory,  particularly those who own older homes. The steep pitch of the roof means that inside your conservatory will feel light and spacious.

There are three main cost considerations to consider when buying a conservatory:  size, roof type, and building work. For price comparisons please refer to the chart below.


Conservatories can be roofed with glass, polycarbonate or tiles. The roof  you choose will have a large bearing on the overall cost of your conservatory, so it is important to consider the option that is best for you and your budget.

The cheapest option is polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is a strong plastic that is able to withstand high and low temperatures and strong winds. Polycarbonate is light, which make sit easy to transport and install, but it is notas  scratch resistant as glass, so care needs to be taken during building and cleaning.  Polycarbonate has a frosted appearance, so is ideal if you need privacy from over looking windows. Polycarbonate can be covered with a film to reflect UV rays.  A Victorian style conservatory with a polycarbonate roof will cost between £11,000 and £14,100.

Glass roofs are the more traditional option and they provide better insulation than polycarbonate, so you will use less energy to heat your conservatory on cooler days. Glass is heavy, so more difficult and more expensive to transport and install than polycarbonate. Glass is weather proof and scratch resistant. A conservatory with a glass roof will cost between £12, 100 and £14,800.

A tiled roof is the most expensive option, but is ideal if you are planning to use your conservatory all year round; better insulation will keep heating costs down. A tiled roof  will allow less sunlight into your conservatory, but you can have windows and roof windows installed. You can choose to have a traditionally tiled roof, or a lighter Guardian tiled roof, which will require less structural support. Internally, glass roofs can be finished with plaster or timber.  Tiled roofs cost between £15,400 and £16, 850.

Size / Measurements

Without planning permission your conservatory cannot be more three metres wide (four metres for a detached property)  or over four metres in height. Once you have decided which size of extension you are going for, you will have an idea of how many windows and doors you will need. A conservatory measuring 3500×3500 will cost upwards of £11,000. A large conservatory measuring 4000×4000 will cost upwards of £14, 1000.

Building Work

Conservatories can be built on a steel base, or on a traditional concrete foundation. A concrete foundation requires more work, whereas a steel base can be laid straight on the ground – structural support is provided by steel piles which are placed around the perimeter of the base and filled with concrete.

You can opt to have your conservatory glazed to the floor, or built upon a dwarf wall. Building a Victorian conservatory will cost between £2,000 and £3,800,  depending on the size of the conservatory and the labour and materials used .

The good news is that you do not need to get planning permission to add a conservatory to your home, but there are rules that you need to adhere to. It is best to research these before you start, but the main criteria are that your conservatory should not be separated from your property by external walls Your conservatory cannot be more than four metres in height, and cannot be more than three metres wide for an attached, or four metres for a detached property.
