Combining literary heritage with theme park-style family fun, Dickens World offers the chance to learn about one of the greatest writers our country has ever produced. As visitors stroll around the Victorian courtyard, they’ll meet some of Charles Dickens’ most famous characters face to face – an experience which really brings his work to life. The 4D cinema show at Peggotty’s Boathouse and the animatronic performance at the Britannia Theatre also shed light on Dickens’ life and work in a fun, creative way.
Children can find out what school life was like more than 100 years ago by paying a visit to the Victorian school house. For a real adventure, jump aboard the Great Expectations Boat Ride (which makes a real splash) and test your nerve by stepping inside the spooky Haunted House of 1859.
