Dr Johnson's House

Dr Johnson's House is a charming 300-year-old townhouse, nestled amongst a maze of courts and alleys in the historic City of London. Samuel Johnson, the writer and wit, lived and worked here in the middle of the eighteenth century, compiling his great Dictionary of the English Language in the Garret.


This strikingly attractive and highly visual website features stories and pictures associated with “Lives on The Strand: Past, Present, and Creative”.
