Walks take approximately an hour and a half, starting at exit 1 (by Robert Dyas) of Chancery Lane Station and ending at the Charles Dickens Museum.
Dickensian Walks explore the streets and alleyways where many of Dickens greatest novels unfolded. As you move through the streets of Victorian London, you’ll be following in the footsteps of some of literature’s most memorable and enduring characters!
These fantastic walks provide a unique opportunity to examine the life of Dickens through visiting places that shaped his life – from humble beginnings to his legacy as one of Britain’s greatest literary figures.
Dickens went on long rambling walks around London, taking in the sights and sounds, observing people and places, and using them as inspiration for his timeless stories and characters.
Walk leader Richard Jones is author of the definitive guide book Walking Dickensian London. A qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide, Richard has been giving tours of Dickens’s London since 1982 and is known for both his entertaining delivery and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Dickens.
