What could be jollier? It’s 1827 and the streets are thronged with hundreds of costumed characters. Everywhere you look there are top hats and frock coats and bonnets and hooped skirts. Yes, it’s Christmas time in Charles Dickens’ home town. Welcome to the best Dickens Christmas Festival in the world. And there’s guaranteed snow! Let alone a parade and a candle-lit carol service. And not forgetting – our exploration – our walking tours – of Dickens’ Rochester.
Guided by Simon
The cost, including the rail fares, is £45 for adults, £40 for seniors and students, £20 for children.
We go to the Dickens Christmas Festival on Saturday, December 3. Meet Simon – you won’t have any problem spotting him because he’ll be in Victorian costume, complete with top hat – at 9 am by the mainline Ticket office in Victoria Railway Station
