Department 56 Dickens' Village
The Dickens' Village Series® commemorates the architecture, customs and history of Victorian England. These distinguished and quaint buildings and accessories are an inspiration to all who make them part of their holiday traditions. With Department 56 Dickens' Village houses and accessories, you step back into the festive holiday season of 19th Century Victorian England. At the time of Charles Dickens, England was a center of culture for the world, and many traditions we celebrate today have their origins to that period. Introduced in 1984, the Village and accessories were inspired from Charles Dickens' classic novels, like A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby, David Copperfield and Great Expectations.
