This house is on the high street and free to enter. Although there is not a huge amount to it is well worth a visit and very interesting. The walled garden is a delight and the people who run it are very passionate and helpful.

Have been to Rochester many times and not seen this open. What a treat! No entry charge and whilst it is small it gives you another insight into Rochester’s history seen through the eyes of Charles Dickens. Well worth a visit if you’re passing. Lovely...More

I have been here a few times recently when showing friends around Rochester and it is always interesting. It has a pretty garden out the back. It is worth taking time to look at everything in here and it is free but donations are appreciated

So interesting and so beautifully organised and set up, A charming courtyard garden was the final highlight . This is well worth a visit and likely to be a unique experience. Well done to all the conservation and restoration teams

A visit to Rochester for anyone interested in History would be wasted without calling at this excellent venue. The building alone is worth the visit but there are also strong ties to Dickens and memorabilia of the period. The 'lodging' rooms of the 'poor men's'...More
