Dr Johnson's House


About the Dr Johnson's House

A museum based in the former home of the 18th-century English writer and lexicographer Dr Samuel Johnson.

It's a Georgian era building which has been left pretty much as it was when it was lived in.

Do also look out for the statue of the Dr's cat, in the courtyard.
