London Walking Tours

A Dickens Christmas London

Join us for a journey through the London of Charles Dickens with some special Christmas moments.

We venture to locations that offer us clues into the origins of Christmas Past, and learn about some of the more unusual customs and�games from the period such as the mysterious 'SnapDragon'.

Visit the Old Curiosity Shop, discover the place where Bob Cratchit in A Christmas Carol 'went down a slide 20 times in honour of it being Christmas Eve'. Discover the maze of alleyways where Dickens placed the counting house of A Christmas Carol's Ebeneezer Scrooge.

Here it is not difficult to conjure up images of Scrooge's neighbours 'wheezing up and down, beating their hands on their breasts, and stamping their feet upon the pavement stones to warm them'.

Our tour encompasses the place where Dickens read privately from the Christmas book 'The Chimes' and follows the trail of this writer through the city he documented so carefully through his works. A rare Christmas treat to engender the spirit of Christmas long gone by.
