#plaque366 #WorldBookDay Special! Charles Dickens @WorldBookDayUK

A London commemorative plaque for every day in 2016. 

The plaques are selected from all walks of life, and all points of the London compass – and I'm taking requests too!

DROP ME A LINE or leave a comment below if you'd like to nominate a plaque for inclusion in the series





With World Book Day UK taking place this Thursday 3rd March my #Plaque366 series today (and every day until Thursday) features a famous author.


On World Book Day 2016, children are encouraged to come to school dressed up as their favourite character from a book. Which character would you pick?


Be sure to visit the World Book Day 2016 website here: http://www.worldbookday.com/

(Parenting note: With World Book Day this Thursday it meant that I only had to iron FOUR school uniforms this weekend as opposed to five. HOORAY for World Book Day!)


Here's Charles Dickens in Cranleigh Street, the site of a house where Dickens lived in Somers Town…






Last December, in honour of Bob Cratchit, I walked from Cornill to this plaque (above) in Somers Town in emulation of Bob's "commute" to work. Catch up with what I saw at the following links:












Here's how to find Cranleigh Street…






A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
