Christmas at the Charles Dickens Museum
Each year, the Museum provides a unique and enchanting glimpse into how the festive season was celebrated by the great Victorian author, with the historic interiors transformed into a true embodiment of Christmas Past.
Follow in Dickens’s footsteps as you savour the sights, sounds and smells of the rooms where he lived and worked - with holly and ivy decking the halls, beautiful Victorian decorations and a whole host of other festive surprises to discover.
Christmas at the Museum has become an annual festive highlight for many visitors to London and locals alike. After all, what better place to experience the rich traditions of a Dickensian Christmas than in the home of the author of A Christmas Carol?
All December special events will go on sale as of November 1st due to the demand of tickets as this helps prevent events selling out very early. Events will include readings, performances, immersive theatre and our annual Christmas Eve day of festive delights! Please check back in to our Events Page then.
