Something to do to pass a couple of hours in the city. Fairly cheap at £4.50 for an adult, we decided to pay £1.50 to get the recorded tour which lasts about an hour and is a vital accompaniment to any visit. The architechture of the house is fairly interesting but not too outlandish and there's not too much on display, most notably a reprint of his famous dictionary. The real value add comes from the recorded tour which is very interesting and really sheds light on pictures and Johnson's life. Its hidden away down some back alleys off Fleet Street but I recommend a visit if you get an opportunity and are in the area with time spare, not sure I'd go out of my way to visit. All the same it was enjoyable.
