Edgar's Guide to Charles Dickens' London will take you on an enchanting journey through the novelist's life and works, and will enable you to look upon buildings that have changed little, if at all, since Dickens knew them. One minute you will be following the young Dickens as he sets of for a memorable encounter that will leave him with a black eye, the next you are following the mature Dickens as he delves into the gaslit lanes of an area of which he wrote "You can read on its gates 'who enters here leaves noise behind'." It is these encounters with the past that make this guide such an enjoyable and informative experience. And, to be honest, so evocative were Dickens' descriptions of the places you will visit, there isn't a great deal that Edgar could add to them! So, let Charles Dickens be your guide to the streets of his London, and prepare yourselves for a journey of true discovery that will leave you wanting to know more about the man, his city, and his times.
