Now, money.co.uk have taken a look at some of the properties mentioned in Charles Dickens’ books to see how much they would be worth today.

Scrooge’s home from A Christmas Carol would be worth a massive £9,800,000 today, Ebenezer Scrooge’s home is located at 45 Lime Street in Central London.

Tiny Tim’s home which is only briefly mentioned in A Christmas Carol is in Camden at number 16 Bayham Street which in the 1800s was far from the trendy place that it is today and is worth £985,000.

Other properties including Miss Havisham’s house in Great Expectations is worth £4,550,000 and the second most expensive property valuation, David Copperfield’s lodgings was estimated at £2,500,000 and Oliver Twist – The Workhouse is priced at £1,820,000 – £2,100,000.

Charles Dickens books are as popular today as ever and we love watching some of his books turned in films including A Christmas Carol.
