Follow in the author’s footsteps with this new Dickens Town Trail

To mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of Dickens House Museum, a new town trail will guide you around Broadstairs.

The trail highlights places where Dickens and his family stayed when visiting the town for their holidays, the much-loved stories he wrote whilst here, along with photos showing how the town would have looked at this time.

There are several ‘Did you know’ facts about the author and the town.

The trail starts and ends at Dickens House Museum on the seafront. It is approximately 1.2 miles long and takes around an hour to complete.

Trail leaflets are available at Dickens House Museum or can be downloaded here
