Charles Dickens Museum

The Charles Dickens Museum in London holds the world’s most important collection of material relating to the great novelist and social campaigner. A Georgian terraced house in Bloomsbury, the Museum attracts visitors from around the world. The rare books, paintings, photographs and memorabilia on display here give a unique insight into the life and work of the author.
‘My house in town’, as Dickens referred to 48 Doughty Street, was an important place in the writer’s life: within these walls his eldest two daughters were born, his sister-in-law Mary died aged 17 and some of his best-loved novels were written , including Oliver Twist. It was in this house that he achieved lasting celebrity and universal recognition as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.
