Dr Johnson's House
**ANNOUNCEMENT** Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, Dr Johnson's House is currently closed. Check the website for more information.
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.
