Easy to reach from London and Dover


Visit the Kentish towns & countryside that inspired many of the Victorian novelist Charles Dickens' greatest novels. See for yourself scenes from Great Expectations, Pickwick Papers and The Mystery of Edwin Drood along with many others. Experience the marshes where Magwitch hid after his escape from the prison hulks and the church where he frightened poor Pip half to death. Stroll through the streets of Rochester (known as Cloisterham in his novels), see the imposing house that was Miss Havisham's home. At some times of the year it is possible to visit inside. See Gad's Hill, the house Dickens set his heart on buying or travel to Broadstairs to see Bleak House, the Dickens' holiday home and inspiration for yet another novel.
