Charles Dickens was arguably (...or unarguably) the greatest London novelist of all-time. And London was much more than just a setting for his stories -- it practically played the role of a major character itself, with its crowded streets and dark and secret backwaters bringing life to his novels and the lives within it.

This walk will take you round some of those sites, and teach you a little about Dickens' best books.

You you enjoy reading Charles Dickens then you might be interested in visiting one of his old homes as well -- the Charles Dickens Museum in Doughty Street. Check out Craig's review of it in his blog.
