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, 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.

Dr Johnson's House is open to the public throughout the year, from Monday to Saturday. The opening hours are 11am - 5.30pm, May to September, and

11am - 5pm , October to April. The house is closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
