Step back in time and discover Dickens’s only remaining London home, which is beautifully decorated just as it would have been when the great author lived there. Explore a trail, try costumes on, and listen to a family audio guide narrated by resident hedgehog Bill Spikes – there’s something for all of the family here!

This museum holds the world’s most important collection of material relating to the great novelist and social campaigner. ‘My house in town’, as Dickens referred to 48 Doughty Street, was an important place in the writer’s life: two of his daughters were born here, his sister-in-law Mary died here aged 17 and some of his best-loved novels were written here, including Oliver Twist.It was in this house that he achieved lasting celebrity and universal recognition as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

On site, there is also a beautiful garden café with scrumptious cakes.
