Expected it to be much more than what it is!! Didn't seem like worth the money spend for a family with 2 kids.

Is a great place to visit as the tour goes into detail about the history of the docks back in the war, the actors are very good and are nice and friendly.

This is for anyone planning to visit, Dickens World in now closed down, with a sign on the door stating the landlords reprocessed the building, such a shame as it was lovely place to visit and experience part of history.

This attraction is now closed but even when it was open it really wasn't worth the money it cost to get in. Better to visit Chatham historic dockyard instead.

We got a groupon deal for entrance and a drink for £5 each, this is excellent value for money. The tour guide, Tiny Tim, was very good and kept us all entertained. The kids loved it and learnt about Victorian times.
