If you are keen to add a little rhyme and reason to your trip to Britain then be sure to stop by the Charles Dickens museum, which is undoubtedly one of the most lyrical London attractions.
The museum is actually the former home of the novelist, who lived there between 1837 and 1839.
It is rumoured that he wrote two of his most famous tales, Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby, while he resided there.
The museum contains an array of manuscripts, paintings, a research library, rare editions, and personal items which belonged to the author.
Dickens is something of a classic in English culture and this attraction stands as a true beacon of British heritage.
The museum is also partnering with the Wilderness festival and from August 8th - 11th, some of the most inspiring visionaries in theatre, music, outdoor pursuits and food will gather at Cornbury Park to celebrate the occasion.
