Take a Dickensian walk

Sure, the idea of a costumed tour is the sort of thing you may expect to find in North America, or the smaller market towns of northern England, but it's good when people get into character and today a special regular tour of Dickensian London leaves the Dickens Museum at 11:30am and 5pm.

The hour and a half tours cover the area between the Charles Dickens Museum and Holborn Circus, led by Richard Jones, the author of Walking Dickensian London, who has been giving walking tours of Dickens' London for longer than your author has been able to walk.

  1. It is normally said these tours are for those who love the books of Dickens and want to discover where the stories were set. I thought he treated his wife abominably, but I still want to discover where his stories were set. The Charles Dickens Museum is a highlight, whatever you think of Dickens' skills as a husband and father.
