This is a free guided walk through the streets of Old Borough and London Bridge following the 'Twists and Transformations' of Dickens' early childhood.
This walk revisits the highways and byways of early Victorian London encountering the traumatic twists in Dicken's early years as he took his first tentative steps into this new city of opportunity starting with the debtors prison of Marshalsea and in the places Dickens frequented: the quiet graveyard of St George the Martyr, the bustling fruit and veg market, Old London Bridge.
