Thanks to the Charles Dickens Museum and Dickens World for supporting this Celebrating Dickens project.
Charles Dickens Museum London
The Charles Dickens Museum London is based at the historical 48 Doughty Street location. It was here that Dickens penned some of his best loved novels, including Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby. He described it as 'my house in town'.
Today the museum - opened in 1925 - houses the world's finest Dickens-related collection.
Dickens 2012 is an international celebration of the life and work of Charles Dickens to mark the bicentenary of his birth, which falls on 7 February 2012.
