Charles Dickens Museum
With a National Art Pass you get
Charles Dickens's elegant townhouse is preserved in all its Victorian finery.
Following the 'Great Expectations' project, the Museum reopened to the public during the author's bicentenary year, 2012.
As well as restoring the house at 48 Doughty Street – Dickens’s home at the start of his career and the birthplace of classics Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby – and opening the house’s attic and kitchen for the first time, the Museum expanded into neighbouring 49 Doughty Street. The adjacent building was converted into a state-of-the-art visitor and learning centre.
The museum appears on our list of literary landmarks around the country.
