Childhood in Dickensian London

With 2020 marking the 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens’s death, Senate House Library’s exhibition takes you on a journey through Victorian London from the 1830s until the turn of the 20th century, exploring the role of Dickens in creating a better childhood for us all.

Even though the Library is currently closed, you can still experience a flavour of the exhibition online.
