  • We were here to learn more about Dickens and the Smuggling museum. Visiting on a Friday during the afternoon. Nothing was quite ready, staff tricky to get hold of. Eventually found the Charles Dickens room which needs a bit of a spruce up. The Smuggling museum in the basement was fun and informative, showing its age a bit but kids will enjoy it. Cost £4 which seems just about right. Maybe a pound cheaper would be excellent value. The cafe was not open when we visited.
  • What can be said about this lovley house that's not be said before .it has an amazing history to it. I understand it's up for sale right now. If only I had the money. Living here would be a dream.
  • We stayed overnight in Fagins room . It was lovely and the bed was super comfy . We had breakfast which was superb. The staff couldn't have done more for us
  • We went to bleak house for tour about Charles dickens and the smiles tour both are very interesting
  • Stopped here for a cream tea was very nice
