This year Britain has been celebrating 200 years since Charles Dickens was born. And in his honour, the Museum of London is putting on the first major Dickens exhibition in over 40 years. But there are plenty of other things to do and see in London that were there in Dicken’s time as well.
The British Musem is a neo-classical building finished in 1882, visited by David and Steerforth in the novel David Copperfield.
Definitely not to miss in London is Camden Town, great for shopping. Dickens himself lived at 16 Bayham Street, as well as the Cratchits in his famous novel A Christmas Carol.
Don’t forget to head over to Covent Garden, where David Copperfield buys flowers for Dora and watches ‘Julius Caesar’ at the Covent Garden theatre. There are loads of lovely bars and restaurants here too – perfect for the more discerning traveller.
And don’t forget to check out our London rooms for great places to stay on your visit!
