Dickens London. Inexpensive Tours of London.
This is without doubt one of my favourite Dickensian routes, packed with places that Dickens knew intimately and about which he wrote frequently. This delightful stroll through Dickens London takes youn from the peaceful quietude of Staple Inn, through the timeless solitude of Lincoln’s Inn, and on to the gaslit oasis that is the Temple, this walk has it all. The walk passes the home of Dickens’s greatest friend, John Forster, provides the opportunity to visit a wonderful museum, and takes you into a truly enchanting section of the capital that really is an enchanting survivor of Dickens London, and which has changed little since Dickens wrote of it, “you can read on its gates ‘who enters here leaves noise behind.’
The walk is part of our commitment to provide free sightseeing tours aimed at both the active walker and those who just wish to understand a little more of Dickens London at their computer. You will also have the opportunity to book onto one of our inexpensive tours of London.
