The 19th Century residence of the literary great, Charles Dickens, is preserved in all its Victorian finery at this, his only surviving London family home. It was here that Dickens wrote some of his best-loved novels, including Oliver Twist, and achieved lasting fame as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

Visitors have the chance to step back in time to 1837 and experience Dickens’s home as if he had just stepped out the door. Spread over five floors, the elegant townhouse is filled with a collection that includes rare editions and original manuscripts, with informative exhibits and knowledgeable guides.

A Dickens Whodunit: Solving the Mystery of Edwin Drood

11th May – 22nd November 2015


This captivating exhibition explores the legacy of Dickens’s final and unfinished novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Investigate the central crime scenes, search for murder clues hidden in Dickens’s former home and see the table on which the novel was penned, along with clips from theatrical adaptations and a wealth of theories on ‘whodunit’.

The opening of this exciting exhibition coincides with the conclusion of the Drood Inquiry, an interactive investigation into the mystery, at

The front of Dickens' London house and the original cover jacket to The Mystery of Edwin Drood
