Charles Dickens Museum

The Charles Dickens Museum was home to the great author and his family from 1837 until 1839. The Victorian home is where he achieved worldwide notoriety for his Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby and Pickwick Papers novels. The Dickens Fellowship saved the property from demolition in 1923 and after a brief period of renovation it was opened to the public in 1925 as the Charles Dickens Museum.

Visitors can enjoy the famous Dicken’s Dream portrait by R.W. Buss which hangs here, along with a number of rare first editions, manuscripts and letters all penned by Dickens himself. The home of one of the world's most cherished writers provides the chance to see the space which spawned a countless number of classic texts that will last forever.
