Walking around Dickens World, you’ll find yourself transported out of Chatham and back to the dark, cobbled streets of Victorian London.
Even if you don’t know your Oliver Twist from your Great Expectations, a boat ride through the London sewers (with accompanying smells) should give you a good introduction to the life and times this famous author was writing in.
Don your glasses and head into the 4D theatre for an in-your-face retelling of Dickens’ trip to America, before sneaking into the haunted house to see his ghoulish characters come to life.
It pays to take note, as the classroom awaits; strict school masters are on hand to test your novelist knowledge, and they won’t tolerate any lazy students. After lunch in a Victorian pub, take your little rascals to Fagin’s Den, where a soft play area awaits those who (please, sir) want some more.

It should take no more than a couple of minutes.
