7 February is Charles Dickens’ Birthday, have a look at the BBC History Charles Dickens  site for lots of content on Charles Dickens, including videos, a biography section, a quiz and information on Victorian London. I live around the corner to St Lukes Church which is where the famous author Charles Dickens was married.

The Guardian has a great article and  educators links to Charles Dickens on its website, as it is an independent newspaper I have noticed that is asking for a contribution £5 to continue to produce their free content, which I think is a great idea to support press freedom.
