Event Details

London at night is a mysterious place. People behave differently, the streets are sodium yellow and the parks are dark. As colours desaturate, familiar areas reveal the murky underbelly of Dark London. This winter, City Lit invites you to venture into the night and explore the wild shadow city...

We follow the footsteps of London’s literary colossus, Charles Dickens, on this insomniac ramble through the London night. We’ll visit gibbets and gaols, breweries, bridges, churches and asylums on a circular tour through the bustling London of his novels. We’ll stop for a drink at the historic Anchor Tavern.

Along the way we'll be stopping at some of London's unique pubs, bars and cafes. Drinks are not included in the ticket price.

Henry Eliot has led walks for Google and The National Trust. He is a London obsessive and loves mapping strange routes through familiar surroundings. He co-edits Curiocity, a folded map-magazine of unusual things to do in London, which is sold in shops throughout the city.

Start: Charles Dickens Coffee House, 26 Wellington Street, WC2E 7DD

Finish: Charles Dickens Coffee House
