The London Pass London Pass Benefits: Access to The Charles Dickens Museum with a London Pass Normally £9.50 - Included with London Pass

Explore the former home of Charles Dickens and discover the life and legacy  of one of history's greatest novelists at The Charles Dickens Museum, included with The London Pass.

The Charles Dickens Museum in central London is a celebration of one of the greatest novelists in British history. The museum exhibits over 100,000 items from personal items to artwork and manuscripts from some of his books.

Found at 48 Doughty Street, the former home of Dickens from 1837 to 1839. It is said that he wrote 2 of his most famous stories whilst living here, Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby. The building is the writer’s only surviving London house and visitors can get an insight to what life in the household would have been like.

Permanent exhibitions include portraits of the man, manuscripts of his work, personal items and letters. 

The Museum also has a café, perfect for a cup of tea and slice of cake after a wander round these famous quarters.

Please note: due to space limitations, we can only permit groups of less than 10 people into the house at any one time. Any groups larger than 10 people must be booked in advance and we regret that the London Pass is not accepted for Group Bookings.

Well worth the money! We bought a six-day pass, including an Underground pass, and used it every day we were in London. In fact, I calculated that we would have spent more on getting into places and using the Tube, than the pass cost. The pass book, listing where it could be used, was invaluable and pointed us to places, like Benjamin Franklin's home, we wouldn't have visited otherwise. I'll get a London pass again, next time I visit!
