Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Inner Temple, London EC4Y 7HL England

On our journey towards the locations featured in A Christmas Carol we will take in some other Dickens sights. Let's explore the area where Dicken's worked as a junior Clerk. From the mysterious Inns of Court he took inspiration that would later find it's way in to David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and Martin Chuzzlewit.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, 145 Fleet St, London EC4A 2BU, UK

A Tavern with Cellars dating to the 13th Century. This Pub was a haunt of Dickens and a meeting place for the Hellfire Club. David Copperfield drinks here in the Novel of the same name.
Shall we rest by the fire and warm up with some Mulled Wine?

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Royal Exchange Building London, Threadneddle St Mansion House, London England

Right next to the Bank of England, the Royal Exchange is where the Ghost of Christmas yet to come takes Scrooge to see his colleagues discussing his funeral. The steps of the Exchange are the traditional spot where Royal announcements are made.
Today you can cross the trading floor, but the bankers are long gone. Now designer shops, and Champagne bars attract the visitors attention.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: London's Original and All-Inspiring Coffee House, St Michael's Alley, London EC3V 9DS, UK

Let's get off the beaten path and head deep into the world of Ebeneezer Scrooge and 'A Christmas Carol' as we visit Scrooge's Counting House, the place where he took supper on Christmas Eve, and Charles Dickens favourite Chop House the George and Vulture.
If Dickens was on this tour with us, he would be able to go in to the George and Vulture, find his favourite table, and even order his favourite meal. Not a lot has changed.
This atmospheric old tavern was the meeting place of the Pickwick Club and is mentioned over 20 times in the Pickwick Papers.
The equally unchanged Tavern round the corner, Simpsons is most likely Scrooge's favourite eating spot. Your guide will explain why!


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: George and Vulture, 3 Castle Ct, London EC3V 9DL, UK

One of Charles Dickens favorite restaurants and Chop Houses.
Mr Pickwick and his famous Club met here. As did the notorious Hellfire Club.
The interior of this fine establishment is unchanged since the time of Dickens.

Was this Scrooges Dismal Tavern?

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Leadenhall Market, Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 1LR England

In recent years this beautiful market has been used in the Harry Potter Films. But Charles Dickens used this location in A Christmas Carol. It was here that Scrooge sent the boy to fetch the largest Turkey on Christmas morning when he awoke as a reformed man.

Richard was friendly and very knowledgeable. We learned about Charles Dickens’s life and the Christmas Carol locations. As well as some some fun London trivia. We also saw some of secret London which was great fun. There was plenty of opportunity for flexibility in the tour (breaks etc). Would heartily recommend.
