The Dickens!

Local history vividly brought to life on these guided walks with writer-performer John Constable, author of The Southwark Mysteries and Secret Bankside.

In 1824 Charles Dickens' father was imprisoned for debt in the Marshalsea Prison. On this walk we'll explore Dickens' childhood encounters with the Victorian underworld, visit the places which cast a shadow over his entire life and inspired scenes in novels from Little Dorrit to Oliver Twist.
