Drinking & Dining:
When our own café and bar isn’t open, there are a range of local pubs and eateries only a short walk away on Grays Inn Road or nearby Brunswick Centre.
As well as our Museum shop the Charles Dickens Museum is close to some of the most interesting shopping areas in London. Leather Lane market, Hatton Garden, Lamb’s Conduit Street, the Brunswick Centre, Marchmont Street and Granary Square are all within walking distance.
Local green spaces that are open to the public include Brunswick Square Gardens, Russell Square, Bloomsbury Square and St George’s Gardens. All have interesting histories. Bloomsbury, For example, is the oldest square in London. Of the four, St George’s Gardens are perhaps the least well-known and most atmospheric.
