Loved the Charles Dickens Museum and house where he lived..can just imagine from years gone by living in such an gorgeous house in London. The only downfall was i asked a member of staff a question about the Charles Dickens house in Broadstairs in Kent and she did not have a clue what i was talking about or wasnt interested in finding out for me..other than that i was pleased i went. My late mother would have loved to of gone here.

My mother is an ardent Dickens fan so this was a must and she enjoyed it very much.
It is made more special knowing that the writer lived here, rather than his belongings/works being exhibited in some random building. It is a charming museum giving an insight into a period of Dickens life and that of his family.
A very enjoyable visit.

Despite London having great number of exquisite museums where admission is free, it would be an incomplete experience if you haven't been to some museums that charge admission, since many of them are real gems. The Charles Dickens Museum, located in one of the London houses where famed writer have lived for a period, represents a faithful recreation of both period and history of private living in 19th century London. The collection is rich and purposefully arranged , from pieces of furniture to Dickens' manuscripts, I do not want to spoil anything further, just wanna add that if you are either Charles Dickens or 19th period aficionado, I sincerely recommend visiting this museum.

A must for Dickens fans, this house has lots of Charlies personal furniture, mostly from his final home (Gad's Hill Place) in Rochester. It has 5 floors including the basement and includes plenty of portraits and photos.

I always like to read the hand-written letters. Charles writing was poor compared to his wife's and pretty hard to decipher. When you enter there is someone who gives useful information on the house and anything else you wish to know about Charles and his family and friends, along with a leaflet explaining each floor.

The Dickens Museum is excellent. We really loved looking round this house and learning more about the great author and social reformer, I have read his life story and to go here put flesh on the bone of the story. We were very satisfied with this Museum and recommend it to others
