Charles Dickens Museum tour

Number 48 Doughty Street was an important place in Charles Dickens's life where he resided from 1837 until 1839. Dickens described the terraced Georgian dwelling as 'my house in town'.

Two of his daughters were born here, his sister-in-law Mary died aged 17 in an upstairs bedroom and some of Dickens’s best-loved novels were written here, including Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby. However Dickens required more space for his growing family and moved to 1 Devonshire Terrace in 1839. The house remained a residential property, but was threatened with demolition in 1923, when the Dickens Fellowship acquired it. The Museum was opened in 1925 and has become the home of the world’s finest Dickens-related collection.

I thought we could pop in for a tour of the museum and then stop for a drink at a pub afterwards.   The normal admission price is £8 but we get a group discount at £5 each.  

Please note the time is subject to change--I requested 2:00 but it depends on their availability.  Once the tickets are paid for the museum will confirm the time. I'll give more details as we get closer to the date.

    Hi, I might be able to make the Charles Dickens trip after all. Is it still going ahead please and if so, are we meeting up at a particular station and travelling into London together? Cheers, Jenny
