Tell me more about Dr Johnson’s House
Dr Johnson's House is one of the few residential houses of its age still surviving in the City of London. Built c.1700, it was a home and workplace for Samuel Johnson 1748-1759, and it was here that he compiled the first comprehensive English Dictionary. Now restored to its original condition, the house contains panelled rooms, a pine staircase, and a collection of period furniture, prints and portraits. Situated to the north of Fleet Street, the house is found among a maze of courtyards and passages that are a reminder of historic London.

We hope to see you there. Very best wishes from the Art and Artifice team.
