Dickens and his World

In addition to reproducing theatrical settings inspired by the original productions, the Bodleian remembers a Victorian London and the arrival of the railways, and displays a selection of Dickens's writings in their original form.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of lunchtime lectures and gallery talks.
