We are working on a project with the charity Cooltan Arts on a project inspired by Dickens’s journalism and collaborated on the Dickens Trails App which will allow users to experience the heritage of Dickens and discover the links he has with a range of cultural destinations across London.

In Higham, Kent from the 25th July until the 19th August, (Wednesday to Sunday each week) the Charles Dickens Museum will also offer the fantastic opportunity to visit Dickens’s last home, Gad’s Hill Place. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to take a guided tour around the ground floor of the property, which has until now been only accessible to the pupils of the independent school that occupies the building.The £12 ticket will include a light afternoon tea served in the Conservatory, with a programme of special events planned together with family and children’s activities to take place in the house and the garden surrounding it.
