Dr Johnson's House

Dr Johnson's House is one of the few residential houses of its age still surviving in the City of London. Built in 1700, it was a home and workplace for Samuel Johnson from 1748-1759, and it was here that he compiled the first comprehensive English dictionary.

Now restored to its original condition, and containing a collection of period furniture, prints and portraits, it's a reminder of historic London.

Dr Johnson's House also offers workshops in English and history for primary, secondary and university students.
