Pop round to Charles Dickens' House

The Charles Dickens Museum, in Holborn, is situated at 48 Doughty Street, which was Charles Dickens' home from 1837 until 1839. It was here that the great man completed and published The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nichleby.

The building is Dickens' only surviving London home and was opened as a Museum in 1925. It is now home to an important collection of rare editions, paintings, manuscripts, furniture and other Dickens-based items.

The house is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm (from 11am on Sundays) and entrance costs £6. For more information, visit http://www.dickensmuseum.com/.
