  • Tiny tim was our tour guide. He made it fun and educational. The whole family loved it. Made me want to read Charles Dickens books again. Well worth the money
  • Too expensive. Not one pair of 3d glasses work , afterwards were told they had all been dropped therefore none would work.. then why were we given them and told to watch the film?? Boat ride had been removed. Also the dress up part did not happen either. Very disappointed children! Save your hard earned, do not waste at this 'attraction'
  • I loved it. We learnt a lot of things about Dicken's time. The kids were impressed by the classroom. I was stunned by the living conditions on prison boats. Congratulations to the guides.
  • The guide was entertaining....... My 8year old pointed out he didn't learn much about Charles Dickens "why is it called Dickens world, there wasn't much about him in it" Santa was lovely but the set up around did not look like it had been dressed nicely, it was very cold looking, I had an expectation of it being richer looking and more inviting. I was disappointed on the whole by Dickens world, it was shabby, and poorly executed. I wish I'd just taken my son to Bluewater to see Santa now.
  • One of the weirder attractions we've visited. Quite fun and nicely done. I wonder what Dickens would have made of it. Worth a visit if you've nothing better to do on a rainy day.
