Book Synopsis Walking Dickensian London by : Richard Jones

Book excerpt: Charles Dickens and London are inextricably linked. The world-famous English writer lived in London for much of his life and is buried in Westminster Abbey. And it was London and its inhabitants thatprovided Dickens with the inspiration for so many of his works. Walking Dickensian London allows you to visit the locations mentioned in his works and to see the development of Victorian London. Additional routes offer an escape to Cobham or Rochester for a longer country stroll and to discover more about the places where Dickens spent his happy early childhood and retired in his final years. Each walk takes you through an area used as the setting for one or more of Dickens's novels, from the peaceful, cobble-stoned, and lamp-lit Inns of Court featured in Great Expectations to the slums of Holborn portrayed in Oliver Twist. Along the way, you will see the homes of the Victorian great and good, as well as those of the lowlier characters, who made an impression on Dickens in both his personal and professional life. There is also an opportunity to sample authentic fare at the public houses that Dickens frequented. Together with 19th-century engravings and pertinent excerpts from Dickens's works, Richard Jones takes you back in time to the once crowded Docklands, where the river thronged with clippers trading goods from around the world, and the elite of Holland Park with their garden parties and literary dinners. Illustrated with atmospheric color photographs, which capture the pockets of Dickensian London still evident today, Walking Dickensian London is the perfect companion to discovering the London that Dickens knew so well. ...
