A FREE DICKENS WALK IPHONE APP
We’ve been busy over the last few months putting together a free Dickens Walk of London app to offer our clients additional tours around London.
The thing is that our guides really do know London and are able to guide on a wide variety of subjects in addition to our hugely popular Jack the Ripper Walk.
The Dickens app actually explores one of my favourite parts of Dickens London and Walks you around the Inns of Court – Middle Temple, Inner Temple, Lincoln’s Inn and Gray’s Inn – to visit the places that Dickens knew and wrote about. Click on the Walking With Dickens banner below to download the app.
The Walking with Dickens app is a fully functional I Phone app that begins at Temple Station and takes you step by step around the various sites around Fleet Street, Strand and Holborn that are important in the life and writings of England’s greatest novelist.
You will be guided to some wonderful locations such as the “Roman” Bath that Dickens knew as a young man and to which he sent David Copperfield to take cold plunges in what was his most autobiographical novel.
You will explore the Middle and Inner Temple, a part of London that has hardly changed since Dickens wrote of it “you can read on its gates “who enters here leaves noise behind.”
Mention of the Inner Temple brings us back momentarily to our Jack the Ripper Tour as Montague John Druitt, one of the major Jack the Ripper Suspects, actually had Chambers in the Inner Temple at 9 King’s Bench Walk.
You will also visit the bank on which Dickens based Tellson’s Bank in A Tale of Two Cities, not to mention the Old Curiosity Shop as well as locations that featured in Pickwick Papers and Bleak House.
The detailed text lets you know how each of the locations fits into the life and works of Dickens and evocative black and white photographs and etchings add an air of time travel to the narrative.
Best of all it’s 100% ABSOLUTELY FREE! There is no charge for the app, no adverts, just a great and entertaining walk that will take you to some great locations where you really will get the feeling that you’ve stepped back in time.
