Charles Dickens Museum


The Charles Dickens Museum

Located at 48 Doughty Street, London. This is where Charles Dickens lived from 1837 to 1839. Following the success of the Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens and family moved into this gated Georgian Street, and it was during the years that he lived here that he wrote Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby.

It is the only surviving home of the great Victorian novelist and social commentator, and is now home to The Charles Dickens Museum which has a large collection of material relating to the life and times of Dickens. The building was opened as a Museum in 1925 and today welcomes a stream of visitors from all over the world. We launched the building there in the company of Collectors and Cedric Charles Dickens in 2000.

Our ceramic version shows the dates of Dickens’ birth and death on the blue wall plaque.

It stands 21.7cm  (8 & 1/2″) tall to the top of the chimney x 9.4cm (3 & 5/8″) wide.
