Ages: all ages

The Charles Dickens Museum gives the chance to see the house as it may have been during the time when Dickens lived here. The well presented rooms are decorated in an early Victorian style with some of Dickens's personal possessions as well as portraits, manuscripts and letters. The house is also where he wrote some of his most popular novels such as Oliver Twist.
The staff know a lot about the life of Charles Dickens and are happy to share their knowledge. It is also a good opportunity to learn about the city of London during that time too.
So this is not just for Dickens's fans as the house itself is fascinating and there is a brilliant collection of memorabilia, plus small garden to explore.
Free Family Activity Days are held during the summer and include a variety of fun filled craft and hands on activities such as churning butter, building hot air balloons or making madcap top hats!
