Delve into the cobblestone streets and alleyways that inspired the legendary Charles Dickens on this enchanting self-guided audio tour. Literature buffs and curious explorers alike will get a glimpse into the vibrant world of Victorian London, a place that shaped some of the most enduring tales in English literature. Follow this narrative-driven path equipped with only your audio device and imagination to guide you through the very settings that breathed life into Dickens' unforgettable characters. The tour sets off from the exit of St Paul's Underground Station, guiding you past the towering St Paul's Cathedral, down historic Cheapside, and through the intimate corners of the city's ancient alleyways, finally culminating at the ornate Leadenhall Market. Discover sites like the iron-fenced St Peter's Cheapside, the haunting ruins of St Albans, and the timeless tribute to Shakespeare at his storied statue. Along the way, uncover hidden jewels like the secluded corners of Ironmonger Lane and the almost-secretive Frederick's Place. Revel in stories of days long past at the bustling Royal Exchange, which once served as the heart of commerce in Dickens' day, and the former inn of 'George and Vulture' which found its way into the author's Pickwick Papers. Each step of this tour is a step back in time, offering a sensory experience that connects the past to the present. This is not just a walk; it's a journey through the lens of one of literature's greatest minds, offering a profoundly immersive experience where history and story entwine under the London sky.
