Dickensian London Walks for School Groups

Taking part in a Dickens walk gives students the 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.

Using excerpts from Dickens’s novels, insights from those who knew Dickens personally and his own expert knowledge, Richard aims to bring Dickens’s London to life for those who join him on his walks!
