This was a very nice little museum inside of one of Mr. Dickens' former homes. The docents were very nice and helpful. Cute gift shop too!

The place feels quite a family home and volunteers and the wonderful staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, know and love Dickens. Highly recommend, the shop is excellent too! I was spoilt for choice of books

My wife and I visited here in the early evening. It was so nice to see one of the homes of dickens who wrote my favorite novel a Christmas carol. I was impressed by the small yet detailed nature of the museum.

You don't have to know all of Charles Dickens to appreciate this museum. It is a slice of his life in the early part of his career. The best part was the study/desk where he wrote Pickwick Papers. And if you're a Dicken's fan (like my husband), do not miss coming here.

Very well organized front of house service and help. One is allowed to walk in the footsteps of Dickens and actually travel back in time to his times. Photography is allowed with no flash, but one is easily taken with all the interior decor, documents and the office where Dickens used to write and edit his works. This is also a marital home so one can expect to see the influence of his wife as well. Do not miss the lovely experience of the coffee shop,in fact the brand of tea infusions that they have are so delicious that you find them very warming as well and to acquire something nice from the shop. If the weather is good do not miss to step outside in the garden nor miss out the lower grounds of the kitchen, scullery and washroom areas! What lies beneath is as interesting as what lies above!
