We can give general tours that give students a flavour of Johnson's life and works in the eighteenth century. These are particularly popular with overseas groups who are on a study visit to the UK.
Student entry is £8.00 each plus £25 for the guided tour.

Bespoke Tour/Talk  

10 - 25 people
We can adapt a tour to suit your topic of study. Recently we have discussed Johnson and Shakespeare, the architecture of the house and the experience of the black population in eighteenth-century London.

Student entry is £8.00 each plus £25 for the guided tour.

Self-guided visits

Groups are welcome to visit Dr Johnson's House without taking a tour. We do ask that larger groups let us know in advance.
