Portsmouth and Charles Dickens Birthplace Museum Tour
The area is also home to Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory and Henry VIII Historical Mary Rose, which was rescued from the seabed of 1982. Portsmouth is where one of the most famous figures of Victorian literature, Charles Dickens, was born. In the 19th century, this house in Regency was decorated with an idea of the Victorian Portsmouth. If you are a Charles Dickens lover, then, this house definitely must be seen. Look at the first home of Charles Dickens with numerous possessions and photographs, the ceramics, furniture, house artefacts, glass and decorations have faithfully been recreated in the Regency style that Charles' parents favoured, although their properties have been dispersed for a long time. There are three furnished rooms: The lounge, the dining room and Charles ' bedroom. The exhibition room features a snuff box, a tinky cup and a paper knife and a small collection of memorabilia: The couch that he passed away on at his home in Kent, a poignant memory of an author who was celebrated for his prodigious talent and his creative work.
After a long day, you will have the chance to get some free time in the lively Gunwharf Quays in the port, for shopping and dining, while Old Portsmouth harbour offers cobbled roads, sophisticated pubs and a small but interesting cathedral. In its Common Clarence Pier Southsea offers more family fun you can experience. A great day out awaits you in Portsmouth today. Enjoy!
