Please note: The Dickens’ House Museum is closed for refurbishment until December 2012
Charles Dickens lived at 15 different addresses during his lifetime, all of which have now been demolished – except one. The four-storey house that stands in Doughty Street was his home between March 1837 and October 1839.
The museum has been lovingly restored to resemble how it would have looked in the Victorian era, and contains fine 19th-century paintings, various pieces of Charles Dickens memorabilia, and a few of his original manuscripts.
The focal point of the museum is the study, where he completed his first three novels: The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby.
There is also a Regency-style drawing room, and washroom slop house and cellar. The basement kitchen has been renovated to resemble the Dingley Dell kitchen of Pickwick Papers.
