  • Although it might not seem to be a very large house to visit, it has enough interest to make a visit worthwhile. As keen readers we really enjoyed the story of Samuel Johnson and his contribution to the English dictionary.
  • Its a bookshop Thats a winner for a start off. The history is displayed in a great way with av presentations and guides. Much effort is put into.this place. One snag is steep steps. Thats due to its age. Part of its history
