Properties to rent and for sale on Doughty Street, Bloomsbury

Doughty Street is a quiet and beautiful tree-lined road that stretches just 0.1 miles. Its creation dates back to 1790, and it’s well-known for being home to some famous and interesting people such as Charles Dickens, Edmund Yates, Vera Brittain and Winifred Holtby.

Charles Dickens is widely famous as being the author of ‘Oliver Twist’ and it was in number 48 Doughty Street that he wrote this book. Since 1925, number 48 has been a Charles Dickens Museum where visitors from across the world can set foot in the place where Dicken’s lived with his family and wrote many of his famous novels. Entry is just £9 for adults and £4 for children, making it a fantastic visit for those that love one of London’s best story writers.

The houses and buildings that line Doughty Street are mainly grade II listed buildings, some being residential houses and some businesses. It is home to ‘Doughty Street Chambers’ which was set up in 1990 by a small group of Barristers that wanted to help the progression of the law, and has since become a much larger organisation with over 130 members.

Doughty Street runs parallel to Mecklenburgh Square which is a residents-only square with a tennis court and lovely seating to enjoy the warmer summer months, as well Coram Fields which the public can enjoy. Within walking distance of Doughty Street is Russell Square (Piccadilly Line), Chancery Lane (Central Line) and King’s Cross London St Pancras (Northern, Piccadilly, Hammersmith Circle and Metropolitan Line), making it a very accessible location.
