I have spent many days down at Broadstairs during Dickens Festival week and I was spoilt for choice about things to see. This annual festival was the 77th event. I stumbled across it by chance last year and will be going every year now! The week opened on the 14th June with a Parade down the high st of characters... More

It was wonderful to tour the home that Dickens lived in when he wrote a couple of his novels. The house also contains furniture from Dickens final home including his writing desk. Wonderful paintings and photos throughout. There's a charming garden cafe in the back of the house. It truly was thrilling to walk through the rooms this great man... More

The name of this museum is a little misleading, as it's content is part Dickens, part Broadstairs and part Victorian in general. It's not particularly big. And won't keep you for any longer than an hour at most. But for the price, you can't complain about that. The very friendly old chap behind the counter seemed very passionate and well... More

Being fans of the works of Charles Dickens, we found this to be a thrilling experience. The house is most interesting but the main attraction is the office in which Dickens wrote some of his famous stories. It was almost like being there with him. The smugglers den, the garden and the tea rooms are also very much worth a... More

For fans of Charles Dickens this should not be missed. For the rest of us, it is still interesting. See how Dickens lived for part of his life in London.

A very informed guide, who knew her stuff and was keen to answer any questions. The house is small, but beautifully looked after and although there is not much in it, I really liked the very personal approach to it. If you like to see old pics of Broadstairs and the surrounding area, there was a lot of that to... More
