About us

Dickens London is a blog devoted to celebrating the life and works of Charles Dickens. In particular, we aim to explore the connections between Dickens and the city of London. Dickens lived much of his life in London and described the grimy glory of the city in the 19th Century in many of his classic novels.

We have created this blog to share our enthusiasm about Dickens’ writings, our love for London and how they combine. But we are open to everyone. If you want to contribute event information, reviews or write for us, feel free to get in touch with your ideas.
