Event description

Description

Kent was Dickens’ home county. It is the place where he spent most of his early years during what seems to have been a largely happy childhood, when his convivial father was employed by the Navy as a pay clerk at the Chatham Dockyard. His friend and first biographer, John Forster, described it as ‘the birthplace of his fancy’. This trip will allow you to explore Dickensian connections and places of Rochester with Professor Cathy Waters leading us on a guided Tour. This event is free of charge.
