Ce vei face

This is an entertaining, largely Outdoor Guided Walking Tour for fans of Dickens, Victorian History, Literature and anyone who would like to learn more about Britain's greatest novelist in his favourite town - Rochester, Kent - about 28 miles East of the capital, London.

We'll be taking a tour around the town with more Dickens-related locations and buildings per sq mile than anywhere else, and cover his life from birth in 1812, to his death in 1870 (2020 is the 150th anniversary) and weaving in the significance of the town in both his writings AND his life.

We'll be taking a circular route of about a mile, taking in all the key places, to which we will be given EXCLUSIVE ACCESS in some cases.

You'll have a GREAT day - trust me! I'm a local...!

ITINERARY:-
I'll be taking you to ...
the place where Pip became an apprentice, and Miss Havisham's home, in Great Expectations
where Mr Pickwick spent the night,
the place where Christmas Dinner was created,
Dickens' surprise Christmas present (and it's BIG!),
an eatery Dickens was known to frequent and the place where Dickens was last seen in public 3 days before his death.
Other things to note
There are very few places to sit on this tour - sorry :-(

The content is suitable for children aged 12 and over.

The route is accessible for all levels of physical ability. Wheelchair users can access all locations, with alternative routes in place where required.

Hi, everyone! I'm Shane and I LURRRVE all-things History, Heritage and Culture.

I've been on a lifelong search for all the interesting things you can uncover in towns and cities, like the one I'm lucky enough to live in - Rochester.

Meeting local characters who can add layers and colours to stories others can't; finding 'off the beaten path' places to try different foods in surroundings which are unique - you name it! I love the experience.

They all add to the great tapestry of life, don't they? And I love to share those I've found with as many people as possible!
