Twists and Transformations

Dickens' London Borough Walk


This walk is conducted through the streets of Old Borough, and follows the 'Twists and Transformations' of Dickens's early childhood, revisiting early Victorian London South of the River.

By encountering the traumatic twists in Dickens's early years, as he took his first tentative steps into this new city of opportunity, we reveal something of his restless spirit, manifest in his compulsive night-
walking and his feelings of 'houselessness'.

Part of CoolTan Arts' three-day walking festival 'Explore, Exercise, Exhale'.

CoolTan Arts is an award-winning arts in health charity that supports adults with mental health conditions.
