Guided Virtual Tour of the Charles Dickens Museum
Join curator Louisa Price on a virtual, guided tour of 48 Doughty Street, the home of the great Victorian novelist, journalist, speechwriter and public reader, Charles Dickens.
Join us as we explore the five floors of this Bloomsbury townhouse. We will visit the ground and first floor public rooms that reveal Charles and Catherine Dickens’s busy social life, and peek into the book-lined study where Dickens worked on the classics, Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby. In the basement’s bustling kitchen and wash house we will hear stories of the household’s servants and further up in the bedrooms we will learn about Dickens’s personal life and a tragedy that befell the family during their time here. Finally in the attic, secrets will be disclosed that were only revealed after the writer’s death in 1870.
The Museum holds the world’s most comprehensive collection relating to Dickens and as part of this tour, Louisa will also show several treasures not usually on display.
This is a live event and you can ask questions throughout the tour via a chat window as well as in a Q&A session at the end.
Zoom is required to take part in this tour and discussion. A link to the Zoom session will be emailed to registrants the day before the session.
