Charles Dickens Museum

The Charles Dickens Museum in London is the world's most important collection of material relating to the great Victorian novelist and social commentator.

 

The only surviving London home of Dickens (from 1837 until 1839) was opened as a Museum in 1925 and is still welcoming visitors from all over the world in an authentic and inspiring surrounding.

 

Each year, the Museum provides a unique and enchanting glimpse into how the festive season was celebrated by the great Victorian author, with the historic interiors transformed into a true embodiment of Christmas Past.
