Dickens World offers a totally different day out.

You can get splashed on the Great Expectations dark boat ride (so long as you're over 1m tall), learn some of the ghost stories in "The Haunted Man", even play snakes and ladders in our Victorian School room - just watch out for the headmaster!

Peggottys boathouse is a 4D cinema where you can discover which countries Charles Dickens travelled to to tell his stories, and the Britannia Theatre introduces you to some of his characters. If you're under 1.45m tall, you can play in Fagin's Den - a soft play area especially for our younger visitors.

Londonparents do strongly suggest you ring Dickens World before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.


Also, it may be worth clicking the link to Dickens World's website, to see if there are special events and seasonal things to do that may be going on during the day.
