Take a Dickens London Walking Tour and journey into 19th century London that was so wonderfully captured in the novels of the world famous author. Hear stories about his life, see where his stories were set and the characters that brought them to life on this immersive walk.
London had such a huge influence on the life and works of Dickens that its virtually impossible to not read a book and virtually smell and feel the city he wrote about to vividly in his novels. Beginning with his troubled childhood and ending with his breakthrough as an acclaimed author, you will gain an insight into both his early and latter years which helped to mould Charles Dickens into becoming a world famous author.
Through dark twisted alleyways you will be guided to buildings and places that spring straight out of the pages of one of his novels including the remnants of Marshalsea prison his father was incarcerated for being in debt. Many surprising facts and beautiful quotes will be told, while you walk through ancient corners of London taking in fascinating history, anecdotes and enjoying breathtaking views of London’s skyline.
During the Dickens London Walking Tour you will get to stand in the very same places that Dickens did, see where stories such as Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, A Christmas Carol, Bleak House and many other stories were set. You’ll turn corners and be amazed by some of the sites he once knew and journey back to 19th century London hidden amidst the 21st century city of today.
