18: Charles Dickens' House off Theobalds Road

Charles Dickens museumThe Georgian terraces of John Street continue into Doughty Street, where at number 48, Charles Dickens lived for 3 years, writing the classics Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby and making a start on Barnaby Rudge. It is a fair size, four storey residence but Dickens moved into progressively grander homes as his wealth increased and the family grew. None of these other houses has survived but the Doughty Street home is now a museum open to the public.
