Save The Charles Dickens Chalet

24th September 2022

The only monument we have in Medway to Charles Dickens is his wring chalet – the place where he was writing until the day before he died.

The only monument we have in Medway to Charles Dickens is his wring chalet – the place where he was writing until the day before he died.

The chalet is effectively on life support with internal bracing holding it up, whilst timbers continue to deteriorate. Conserving it, if not restoring it to some useful purpose, will not be cheap. This tour of Rochester takes in places familiar to Charles Dickens and connects them with people and events of his time and he was not universally popular. The tour is free, but donations are welcome to The Save The Chalet Fund.

The tour starts at 2:30pm on Saturday 24 September from the front of The Visitors’ Information Centre, Rochester and lasts approximately 90 minutes.

Booking is not necessary.
