The Charles Dickens Museum is the historic family home of Charles Dickens in London
The beautiful Georgian terraced house is where Charles Dickens wrote Oliver Twist, Pickwick Papers and Nicholas Nickleby and the home where he started his family life. While living here, Dickens first achieved international fame as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.
