National Trust: Carlyle's HouseA Queen Anne Town House occupied by historian and 'Sage of Chelsea' Thomas Carlyle and his wife Jane from 1834-1881. A man of letters, Thomas Carlyle was famed for writing 'The French Revolution', the frst volume of which was accidentally destroyed at his friend John Stuart Mill's house after Carlyle loaned him the copy to read. Once the hub of Victorian literary society, Dickens, Tennyson and Ruskin were regular visitors to this home in Cheyne Row, named after the owner of the site, Lord Cheyne. The original Victorian interior remains as do the contents: books, furniture, portraits and personal relics. The house also has a peaceful walled garden.
