On this walk we follow in Dickens’s footsteps as he wandered the streets near his home, seeing places and hearing about people and events that inspired him to write 'Oliver Twist.' We will explore the area long associated with political protest where Oliver is accused of robbing Mr Brownlow as he browses at a bookstall. We walk the streets which once housed some of the worst slums in London and see where Dickens set Fagin’s den of thieves. Discover London’s criminal underbelly of pickpockets, prostitutes and murderers and see the sites of courts, prisons and executions, all of which Dickens saw and wrote about in Oliver Twist.
