Not bad but not really worth the price of the entrance fee.It's a nice old house but has a very tenuous relationship to Charles Dickens.I am a great fan of Dickens but I didn't feel any sense of the great man here

If you like Dickens' books it is really interesting. You can almost feel Charles Dickens' presence! Very interesting pictures and historic items.
