Tope's House

April 2011

Tope's House, now operating as Tope's Restaurant, is where Dickens places Mr. and Mrs. Tope in The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Tope is the Head Verger at Cloisterham Cathedral. He and his wife rent rooms to both John Jasper, in the adjacent gatehouse, and to Datchery, in their own house.
