A visit to the Dickens Museum

Thursday 10 May 2018 11:00 am

Bridge Ward Club members are off on another adventure!

This time we are visiting 48 Doughty Street which was the London home of the renowned author, Charles Dickens. This is the home where he wrote Oliver Twist, Pickwick Papers and Nicolas Nickleby and achieved international fame.

We will explore the house and see his study, the family bedrooms, servants’ quarters, the desk of the great man and drafts from his novels. In addition we will be surrounded by the furniture, ornaments and paintings that belonged to the family.

The house is quite snug, so we have a maximum of 25 visitors, split into two groups of 12 people at 11:00 am and 13 people at 11:30 am on Thursday 10 May 2018. Due to the restricted size of the house, the tour is self-led and takes approximately one hour.  We suggest that we all meet at 11:00 am and some can have a coffee in the café or look around the Dickens Museum shop for 30 minutes.

We look forward to sharing this interesting visit in May.

The cost is £10 per head which covers access to house and your self-led tour.

NB: There is a disabled lift which reaches 4 of the 5 floors

At your own cost, tea and refreshments are available from the Dickens Museum café or nearby restaurants.

As the museum needs names one month in advance please book by 12 April.
