It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… we’re talking about the month of January, that sad sack month when money’s tight, the sky is grey and there always seems like a good reason to stay at home. But fear not, the Charles Dickens Museum has plenty of reasons to have Londoners leaving the house for a visit to the former residence of Mr Dickens.
Beyond seeing the study, the servants quarters and the family bedchambers in all their Victorian glory, the museum currently has an exhibition celebrating the Ladybird Life of Dickens. Featuring the much-loved illustrations from the original book, An Adventure in History: Charles Dickens the show presents a range of illustrated scenes of Dickens’ life, painted by the artist John Kenney.
Admission is £9.00 for adults and £6.00 for concessions.
