Young Dickens House
22 Cleveland Street, Fitzrovia
London, W1T 4JB

Revered by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era, Charles Dickens lived at 22 Cleveland Street (formerly known as 10 Norfolk Street) between the ages of 3 and 4 and again as a young adult. Nine doors down from this, his first London home, stands the historic Strand Union Workhouse, the cruel institution that inspired Oliver Twist and Hard Times. It is with great pleasure that we open these premises for a series of taxidermy workshops, giving you the opportunity to learn a popular 19th century craft behind the same walls from which the writer-to-be opened his eyes on the great city of London for the first time.

Situated in the heart of Central London. Closest tube stations are Goodge Street, Oxford Street or Tottenham Court Road.
