  • We had a very enjoyable hour wondering around this old house, it's a miracle it survived the blitz. Make sure to look out for the original front door on the way out complete with security chain!  more »

  • This is an excellent period house Museum. It has several floors with displays which cover Dr Johnsons life and work. Many of his books are on display. There are also period clothes which can be tried on and special events. Before visiting I suggest you check opening times because they do vary. Set aside a couple of hours to make the most of your visit. It is like stepping back in time.
  • A wonderful morning with a really interesting guide -who told us many facts about the Doctor that was new to us. Four floors of delightful pictures and views of old London.
  • Simply one of the best London destinations. A real gem tucked away off piste. Get there - you won't regret it.
  • Bigger than it looks, some books and pictures. Interesting house. Half price for NT members.
  • Not much in the way of technology, bit a fun visit nonetheless. Well documented, and we'll "artifacted", a good visit while doing Rick Steves walk in the old city.
