Dickens House (London)

Dickens House is a museum devoted to Charles Dickens in London.

It is situated in Doughty Street, WC1.

The house was built between 1807 and 1809, and the young Dickens moved his family there in 1837, after the success of early parts of "The Pickwick Papers".

He wrote "Oliver Twist" and "Nicholas Nickleby" here, before moving to Regents Park as the family grew.

The house was threatened with demolition in 1923, but saved by the Dickens Fellowship, who opened it as a museum on the life and times of this great writer.
