Dickens was a formidable walker: he’d often walk twenty miles a night. Every corner of London was there to be explored; potential inspiration to his arsenal of literary brilliance.
This Christmas, join Sheldon and Sacha as they personally introduce you to some of the characters that have more or less walked out of one of his novels in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park - Ah Sing, the legendary Opium den owner who Dickens wrote into ‘the mystery of Edwin Drood’, the miserly Mrs Emsley; Mile End’s answer to Ebenezer Scrooge and a whole class of Tiny Tim’s, via Dr Barnardo.
They’ll be mince pies and mulled wine - have a walk with the Cemetery Club this Christmas and see Victorian London through the stones of a beautiful historic cemetery and the eyes of one of our greatest writers’.
With a choice of times, the tours will start at the War Memorial, by the Soanes Centre (on the right as you enter via the main gates on Southern Grove E3)
Please wear suitable footwear and wrap up warm: December can be chilly!
