Carlyles House

24, Cheyne Row
Greater London

This Queen Anne house was the home of Thomas Carlyle, the "Sage of Chelsea" for 47 years until his death in 1881.

As a historian, social writer, thinker and public speaker, Thomas is honoured in the house, while his wife Jane's brilliant wit and gift for writing are recognised in the many existing letters.

The Victorian period décor is still very much in place, where an evocative atmosphere allows visitors to experience Thomas and Jane's academic and domestic lives.

This property is owned by The National Trust.
