Dr Johnson’s House is a 300-year-old townhouse, nestled amongst a maze of courts and alleys near Fleet Street. Samuel Johnson, the writer and wit, lived and worked here in the middle of the eighteenth century, compiling his great Dictionary of the English Language in the Garret.
The house is open to the public with a collection relating to Johnson, a research library, restored interiors and a wealth of original features.
The museum will be open on Fridays and Saturdays only, 11am-5pm for self-guided visits, lasting up to one hour. As with most venues these days, visits need to be booked in advance.
Entry costs £8 per adult, and £3.50 per child. Entry is also discounted to £4 for National Trust members.
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
