  • AliBell – “If you are already a fan of samuel johnson then you will love this. We went on one of the walks that run from the house and I highly recommend doing that at the same time, as you get an insight into his life around town as well -- taking in everything from fleet street to his local pub the cheshire cheese! -- Which still seems to have the same Decor as when he drank there. The house is beautifuly preserved in the same style that it would have appeared when he lived there, with 18th-century furnishings, and is situated in a lovely quiet courtyard off fleet street”

The only thing that made it worthwhile for me was the pub down the lane that he went to called the cheshire cheese. That is Decked out in the old style that he was used to as well, but the big advantage that that place had was that it sold beer!”

Samuel Johnson was the famous writer and wit who wrote the first dictionary. I… continued”
