Carlyle's House Museum, London
Located in London’s Chelsea district, Carlyle's House Museum is a typical Georgian house, and is the house in which historian and philosopher Thomas Carlyle lived with his wife Jane.
Illustrious figures such as Charles Dickens and George Eliot often visited the house, which has retained the fervent cultural atmosphere of Victorian London throughout the centuries.
The house was opened to the public as early as 1895, just four years after Carlyle's death, and since then nothing has changed.
Visitors can admire the original furniture, the book collections, paintings and photographs, as well as a number of personal, everyday objects.
In summer the couple would spend their days in the small courtyard garden, which boasts a fig tree that has been bearing fruit for more than two centuries.
