South East Tour of Dickens
From December 2011 until December 2012
Plan your private tour through the countryside of Kent that Dickens knew so well and where he gained much of his inspiration. Tread in the footsteps of Dickens through the ancient city of Rochester, see Gads Hill the house he aspired to for so long, take a trip on the River Medway and visit Chatham Dockyard that so fascinated Dickens. Visit the churchyard where the gravestones of Pip’s little brothers and sisters lie. Drive though the evocative Kent marshes and take lunch in one of Dickens’s favourite pubs. Share Dickens’s enthusiasm for the great British seaside by visiting Broadstairs and Margate. We specialise in touring the area so that you can ‘live the books’ of Dickens. Organised by South East Tour Guides.
