Charles Dickens House and Museum

Discover the London home of Charles Dickens, England's greatest storyteller

Charles Dickens House

Tour the London home of Charles Dickens; the author wrote Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby and The Pickwick Papers while living here. Charles Dickens achieved fame across the English speaking world as a wonderful storyteller and literary genius.

Get an insight into life in Victorian London. Learn about Charles' private life and public persona. See Charles' items and immerse yourself in the stories of tough Victorian London. The house is a Dickens time capsule and dressed with period furniture and ornaments. See items such as handwritten drafts, his wife's engagement ring, and this writing desk.

Catherine and Charles Dickens moved to 48 Doughty Street only weeks before Queen Victoria started her 64 year-long reign. They raised three of their ten children in the house and hosted dinner parties with prominent characters.

The Montague on the Gardens Hotel is a short stroll from Charles Dicken's House and The British Museum. The Montague is also ideal for those taking the Eurostar to Paris; St Pancras International is a seven-minute drive. 

Take a tailored walking tour of London and visit Charles Dicken's London home and museum. There are over one hundred thousand items to see.
