WALK FULLY BOOKED
The George Inn, mentioned in Little Dorrit, will be visited en-route to the outer walls of the Marshalsea Debtors' Prison where Dickens' parents and sister were at one time incarcerated.
A visit to St George the Martyr church will be made. Little Dorrit, on at least one occasion, got locked out of the gaol and rested on the vestry books there; her wedding was held there and is marked by a reference in a stained glass window in that church.
The walk will return to Southwark Cathedral in time for participants to take afternoon tea in the Cathedral Refectory before attending Choral Evensong and a talk by Dickens' biographer Claire Tomalin.
