You don't have to know all of Charles Dickens to appreciate this museum. It is a slice of his life in the early part of his career. The best part was the study/desk where he wrote Pickwick Papers. And if you're a Dicken's fan (like my husband), do not miss coming here.

Very well organized front of house service and help. One is allowed to walk in the footsteps of Dickens and actually travel back in time to his times. Photography is allowed with no flash, but one is easily taken with all the interior decor, documents and the office where Dickens used to write and edit his works. This is also a marital home so one can expect to see the influence of his wife as well. Do not miss the lovely experience of the coffee shop,in fact the brand of tea infusions that they have are so delicious that you find them very warming as well and to acquire something nice from the shop. If the weather is good do not miss to step outside in the garden nor miss out the lower grounds of the kitchen, scullery and washroom areas! What lies beneath is as interesting as what lies above!

If you enjoy Dickens writings, make a visit here. To walk in the shadow of Dickens, where he penned Oliver Twist, among others, is special. Standing over his desk and imagining him working...very special. Friendly staff and nice trinket store.

Went here as part of a BEE Midtown free guided walking tour. We had a snapshot of the building, concentrating on the basement - it was very interesting. Plan to go back and spend more time finding out about the only surviving house in London in which Dickens lived. There is a small shop and pleasant staff.

This must be one of the best small museums in London. It is well furnished, often with original items from Dickens's home at Gad's Hill Place in Kent. You can get an audio guide at an extra charge to the admission price, but the written information in each room is excellent. Just enough writing but not too much.
