Fascinating Georgian house where Charles Dickens lived. His last work (1865) 'Our Mutual Friend' is based around King's Cross and the dust heaps mentioned in the book were situated across the canal from our block. Walking distance.

A fascinating and idiosyncratic museum which John Soane built as his home in 1792-1812. There is a lovely cafe in Lincon's Inn Fields across the road. Also adjacent and interesting for walking around are the ancient 'Inns of Court' where barristers and lawyers have their chambers - quintisentially Dickensian.

C18th feminist Mary Wollstonecraft ('Vindication of the rights of women') is buried here. Author Thomas Hardy was a trainee architect before he turned to writing. He re-modelled the churchyard to make way for the new railways. He stacked the old gravestones in 'Hardy's Circle'. Edward Carpenter wrote here.
