Charles Dickens 1 Night
Bringing Dickens’ London to Life
London is the perfect destination for school trips about Charles Dickens. Enjoy a guided walk around London with a Dickens expert and visit 48 Doughty Street, the London home of the author. He wrote Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers and Nicholas Nickleby here.
Go Back in Time to Victorian London
Discover Dickens’ life and writings at 48 Doughty Street, where two of his daughters were born and some of his best novels were written.
The museum has been the home of the world’s finest Dickens collection since 1925, and has a vibrant curriculum, taught workshops, activities, and interactive visits for pupils from KS1 through to A Level.
A Dickensian blue-badge guide will take you on a fascinating tour, which includes a stroll through the streets of old London, a reading of Dickens’ works, and a visit to his favourite tavern.
“A great trip that really brought the subject of Charles Dickens to life for my students. I have noticed that the students are more engaged back in class which makes the trip even more worthwhile!”
