What to expect

Travel back to the times of the great Charles Dickens to explore the London he knew. You will follow a self-guided audio guide through the city passing places significant to Dickens, such as the places lived in various stages of his life.

Listen to the audio guide created and narrated by Lucinda Hawksley, the author's great great great grandchild. Lucinda is an author herself, a broadcaster, lecturer, and public speaker. Follow her around London and listen as she tells you about Charles Dickens, his childhood, career, and his life.

You can start the tour at any time you like and press pause whenever you need some extra time or want to take a break. You can enjoy the tour on location or at home virtually with VoiceMap's Continuous Play function which disables the GPS playback.

Discover how the now modern streets once looked and how many of these historic streets once inspired Dickens in writing some of his famous novels. Pay attention and see London in a whole new way, through the eyes of Charles Dickens.
