Step Inside the London Home of Charles Dickens

by Derrick Clark December 24, 2015

Here on the Lehigh Valley Home Blog, we love when we're able to let our readers get a sneak peak into fabulous homes - and today is no different. As a special Christmas gift to you, we're heading to London for a look at the home of "A Christmas Carol" author Charles Dickens. 


Charles Dickens would have chosen this London home at 48 Doughty Street for its central location in the thriving city. From here, he could easily walk to any of his publishers’ offices, the local theater or to visit with fellow artists, according to the museum.

Flip through photos from the entire tour! 

By the time Dickens left Doughty Street in 1839 with his rapidly growing family — Catherine would give birth to 10 children during her lifetime — his name was well known throughout the Western world. He would go on to write A Christmas Carol, published more than 170 years ago, on December 17, 1843. To celebrate the publication of that holiday classic, let’s take a look inside the Charles Dickens Museum, or what the author called “my house in town.”
