Mr Monkey visits the Charles Dickens Museum, 17th March

"That chair looks rather comfortable"

Mr Monkey looking at Dickens' drawing room Mr Monkey looking at the Cruikshank Chair

Mr Monkey went up another flight of stairs and into the front room on the first floor. This was the drawing room, and has been carefully restored to appear as it did when Dickens lived here. The plum coloured armchair is known as the Cruikshank Chair because Dickens sat in it for sketches by George Cruikshank in 1837. Dickens sat in this room entertaining his family and friends at the same time as writing bits of Oliver Twist.
