Highlight Story

In a true Dickensian style, a gift has arrived at the doorstep of Charles Dickens’s only surviving London home. The house in Doughty Street, central London, where Dickens lived for three years from 1837, has been awarded a GBP2m grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund, in time for a comprehensive renovation before the bicentenary of the author’s birth in 2012. The house is full of treasures, but shabby and badly in need of the first major refurbishment since it was built.
