LOCATION 13 | Charles Dickens from Furnival's Inn to Doughty Street
Left on Guilford Street
Cross to the other side of the street, then turn left and walk straight. You will see a brown sign directing you to the Charles Dickens Museum, but please ignore that for the moment. We have a little further to go before arriving at the museum.
[5 SECOND PAUSE]
You are now walking along an 18th-century street. Dickens lived in this neighbourhood between 1837 and 1839 and walked here every day. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, this area of London was built up by property developers. They realised that there was money to be made by building homes for middle-class families.
Keep walking straight.
