Charles Dickens, 48 Doughty Street, Bloomsbury, London

The 48 Doughty Street property is the only surviving London home of Dickens (from 1837 until 1839) The museum was opened here in 1925 in its authentic surroundings. On four floors, you can see paintings, rare editions, manuscripts, original furniture and many items relating to the life of one of the most popular and beloved personalities of the Victorian Age.

Unfortunately it was closed when we were there for a huge renovation project.  So we were not able to view the house.
