"London's Worthies: Dickens House Museum" Charles Dickens Museum Tip by yooperprof

Charles Dickens Museum, London: 10 reviews and 26 photos

  Bleak House?
by yooperprof

Dickens lived here before he struck it rich! This is the modest house where he wrote "The Pickwick Papers," "Oliver Twist," and most of "Nicholas Nickelby." It was here that his beloved sister-in-law Mary died in his arms. The Museum also has Dickens' writing desk. It is somewhat small, but it is (surprisingly) the only museum in London dedicated to London's greatest writer.
