Charles Dickens in colour

Charles Dickens London home

The Charles Dickens Museum has reopened!  It’s a very special place as it is Dickens’s only surviving London home  where he lived from 1837 to 1839 and wrote 3 of his most famous novels:  Oliver Twist, Pickwick Papers, and Nicholas Nickleby.

He moved to 48 Doughty Street with his wife Catherine and first child and this is where his fame grew as well as his family. The museum offers you the chance to see where he lived, entertained and wrote and to top that there is a new special exhibition called Technicolour Dickens: The Living Image of Charles Dickens – more on this further down.
