Thomas Carlyle was a gifted essayist of the Victorian era, famous for his volumous history of the French Revolution (1837). Other works include On Heroes, Hero-Worship and the Heroic in History (1841) and The History of Fredrich II of Prussia (1857).

The small three-storey terraced house in Chelsea, in which he lived between 1834 and 1881, has now been turned into a museum of his life’s works.

It contains the original Victorian furniture that he shared with his wife Jane, while entertaining the likes of Chopin, Dickens, Tennyson and Browning.

Lovely touches include his hat still perching on the peg, and his beloved dog Nero laid buried in the garden.
