Win tickets to Dickens World, including pantomime
DICKENS World is an innovative and exciting indoor visitor attraction themed around the life, books and times of one of Britain’s best-loved authors.
It takes you on a fascinating journey as you step back into Victorian England and are literally immersed in the streets, sounds and smells of the early 19th century.
The Great Expectations dark boat ride takes you on a trip from the depths of London’s sewers to a flight across the roof tops of London.
The Haunted Man house brings you face to face with Ebenezer Scrooge and some of Dickens’ other ghosts. Children can have fun on the quest to discover Fagin’s Den, a soft play area.
There is also a 4D high definition show in Peggotty’s Boathouse, and Dotheboy’s School Room revealing the dreaded disciplines of Victorian education.
