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

Please note: Closed on 25 - 26 December and 1 January 2017
15 January, 19 February, 19 March 2017: Open at 13.00

"The London Pass along with the travel pass gave me the freedom to see everything I wanted to see when I was in London. The travel was exceptionally easy and the fact that everything was prepaid allowed me to be worry free about having enough money set back for admissions and travel. I would recommend the use of the London Pass to anyone travelling to London. I will certainly use it on my next trip!"
