Charles Dickens' home site is located at Tavistock Square in London. The famed author and his family moved into an eighteen room residence at this site in November of 1851 and remained until 1860. Although relations between Dickens and his wife were strained during this time he was still able to write several major works while living here. Bleak House (1853), Hard Times (1854), Little Dorritt (1857) and A Tale of Two Cities (1859) were all written, at least in part, during his nine years here. Among his guests during this time were Hans Christian Andersen and Wilkie Collins. The house was torn down in 1901 and the British Medical Association building now stands in it's spot. A blue plaque marks the location.
