Discover Dickens' story in Brighton

About this event

Since his first visit to Brighton in 1837, Charles Dickens returned and stayed in the coastal town repeatedly, often giving reading of his famous novels. He also came to perform during his final reading tour in 1868. Join us this July on a walking tour around Brighton town centre to find out more.

Meet from 11am at Brighton Station for an 11.15am start

A short walk takes us to Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, where curator Cecilia Kendall will be showing us a collection of ceramics and prints depicting Dickens' characters, in the museum lab which is not usually open to the public.

We will have lunch at the historic Old Ship Hotel, where Dickens stayed during one of his tours.

Finally we will be visiting Brighton Unitarian Church. Although baptised in the Church of England and an Anglican for most of his life, Dickens turned Unitarian in the 1840s. Secretary of the church, Francis Clark-Lowes, will be giving a special talk about Dickens and his Unitarian background.

This event will raise funds for our charitable work supporting churches and chapels throughout the UK.
