dickens

if you are looking for something different to do, then make a visit to the charles dickens museum – especially if you are fascinated by the writer.   there are portraits of the family, the writing desk that dickens used to create his famous novels,  his personal book collection –  and even personal artefacts such as jewellery.  after reading his biography by Claire Tomalin my interest in dickens was born – not only does it tell the story of the author, but it vividly describes a london of that era.    nearby is the  john soane museum – another architectural gem.   not only is it a great educational eye opener, but an opportunity to see the inside of these wonderful london historic houses.
