Southwark – Charles Dickens 6

Walking along Borough High Street, from Little Dorrit Court (see previous post), towards the Thames will bring you to the George Inn, a building that Dickens new well. Now owned by the National Trust it has been restored to its former glory as a coaching inn. In Dickens time, there were bedrooms upstairs, a bar for coach passengers and a coffee room which he patronised. He mentions the inn in Little Dorrit, as the place where Tip (Little Dorrit’s brother) goes to write a letter.
