The Charles Dickens Museum

For any Charles Dickens fans amongst you, a visit to 48 Doughty Street, the London home of the greatest Victorian authors is a must.

The Charles Dickens Museum at 48 Doughty Street is a chance to peek inside life in the Dickens family home, walk through the bedrooms, admire the families furniture, paintings and tableware and visit the study where Dickens wrote Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby and The Pickwick Papers, before making your way downstairs into the servants' quarters.

This typical Georgian townhouse was the families home from 1837 until 1839, where Dickens, his wife Catherine and Catherines oldest sister Mary lived, along with three of the couples eldest children (they went on to have a grand total of ten!).

Relax in the cafe and stock up on all the Dickens memorabilia any die hard fan could wish for in their shop.

It's open Tuesday to Sunday 10am - 5pm, and check out their website for events throughout the year!
