Dickens in Southwark Walk

Dickens in Southwark Walk

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Charles Dickens got to know the Southwark area during the early years of his life when his father was sent to Marshalsea debtor’s prison in 1824. Young Charles regularly visited him which sparked ideas and themes and inspired characters which would later reappear to colour many of the novelist’s best-known works. 
On this walk one of Southwark Cathedral’s guides will lead you to some of the places associated with Pickwick Papers, The Old Curiosity Shop, David Copperfield and Little Dorrit.
This walk will take approx 90 minutes.
Meet at Southwark Cathedral’s Welcome Desk situated in Lancelot Link at the West Doors entrance.
We highly recommend you book your places in advance although if these walks do not sell out places may be available on the actual day. 
We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes or trainers and be prepared for all weather conditions.
