Dickens House Musuem (Broadstairs)

Dickens House Museum is a museum devoted to Charles Dickens at Broadstairs in Kent.

It is situated on Victoria Parade, overlooking the bay.

It was the home of Mary Strong, who looked after the young Dickens, with tea and cakes, on his early visits to Broadstairs. She also claimed the right to stop donkeys passing past her house.

When Dickens wrote "David Copperfield", he located Betsey Trotwood`s house here.

The house itself is a mixture of Tudor cottage and early 18th century house, with an added verandah from the Regency period.

It is partly furnished as Dickens would have known it, and is partly a museum.
