“Nice for a quick visit”

Six Poor Travellers House

This is an interesting place, very cute little garden at the back. Doesn't take very long to visit and all the links with Charles Dickens makes it a worthy visit.

This beautiful and historical house is a must for lovers of Dickens. Do check the opening times though as it is also a private house and has limited opening, especially during the winter. I have been twice and whilst it is small and doesn't take long to browse I discovered new information the second time. The tiny but perfectly formed Victorian garden is beautiful.

It doesn't take long to see around this house but its history is fascinating and is told in a very simple way. It's very moving to think of the poor souls who have slept there, particularly as the custom only stopped in 1940. The outhouses they slept in - a room of one's own - and the beds were interesting to see. The house is still lived in so access is only ground floor and garden but it's well worth a visit.

it will only take half an hour to explore this little museum, but it's definitely worth it - a fascinating story.

This is well worth a visit - very interesting to see a glimpse of what life used to be like. I never knew people needed a pass to leave their parish. While we were there, a group came in and the man in charge of the museum gave an extremely interesting (and amusing) talk which made the visit much richer.
