17 Gough Square, LONDON, EC4A 3DEWrite a review
The celebrated literary figure, Dr Samuel Johnson, lived here between 1748 and 1759. He wrote his English Dictionary here, and a facsimile edition is on display at the house. The dictionary took nine and a half years to complete and contained over 40,000 words. The house is a handsome example of late 17th-century architecture, with many original features, and includes a collection of prints, letters and other Johnson memorabilia.
