Charles Dickens Coffee House London

Charles Dickens was born 200 years ago. Dickens created some of the best-known figures in English literature including Oliver Twist, David Copperfield and Pip. Dickens is buried in Westminster Abbey's Poets' Corner, among other literary giants such as Geoffrey Chaucer, Alfred Tennyson and Thomas Hardy.

The Charles Dickens Coffee House in London's Covent Garden is on the ground floor of the building that was the office of All The Year Round, a magazine Dickens founded to publish his stories. At the peak of Dickens' popularity, crowds would gather outside to wait for the latest episode.

Dickens lodged in rooms above the office in the late 1860s for a few years before his death in 1870.

Nowadays, the Charles Dickens Coffee House serves a variety of light meals as well as sandwiches, snacks and beverages. Outdoor seating is available, weather permitting.
