Best known for his Dictionary of the English Language, Samuel Johnson spent the first 27 years of his life in this atmospheric Grade I listed trader's townhouse. Now a Museum to his life and times, with stunning collections and events for all throughout the year. We look forward to welcoming you to Johnson's home.
