Dickens House Museum

Dickens House Museum in Broadstairs celebrates Charles Dickens’ connection to the town (1837-1851). The site Inspired Betsey Trotwood’s home in David Copperfield and the museum showcases Dickens’ belongings—letters about the town, his writing box and sideboard, plus a collection of prints by H K Browne.


Opening Times

29th March – 3rd November 1pm – 4.30pm (last entry 4pm)


The museum is in a heritage and listed building and as such is not fully DDA compliant.  The ground floor is accessible once the door step at the entrance is negotiated. There is a ramp available.  Upstairs is accessible to those who are able to climb a flight of stairs. A concessionary rate can be charged for those who can only access the ground floor rooms.  Assistance dogs welcome.
