Fodor's Review

This is one of the few London houses Charles Dickens (1812–70) inhabited that is still standing, and it's the place where the master wrote Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby and finished Pickwick Papers. The house looks exactly as it would have in Dickens's day, complete with first editions, letters, and a tall clerk's desk (Dickens wrote standing up). The museum also houses a shop and café.
