It’s A Very Dickensian Christmas


Following an extensive eight month, £3 million restoration and redevelopment project, London’s Charles Dickens Museum reopened on December 10th just in time to celebrate a Dickens Christmas and to top-off the Dickens 2012 Bicentenary year festivities.


The beloved author’s Bloomsbury museum, where Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby were written, has been expanded to incorporate the refurbished attic and kitchen. While the house nextdoor has been transformed into a state-of-the-art visitor and learning center.


The Dickens Museum is located at 48-49 Doughty Street and is now open daily from 10am to 5pm.
