The Charles Dickens’ Birthplace Museum welcomes groups from around the world. Whether you’re a local school learning about the great author, or a member of the Dickens Fellowship from the other side of the world, the Birthplace Museum is one of the places you have to visit.

Group sizes

As the museum is housed within the Dickens’ (somewhat modest) family home, social distancing isn’t possible. This is why we’re currently taking private viewings at the museum currently. More information can be found on the Visit page. Groups must be of no more than six people from the same household or social bubble.


Please see the table below for information on group prices:

Senior citizen (aged 60+)£2.90
School, collages or universities*£2.25

*Visits to Charles Dickens’ Birthplace Museum are free for UK schools.


There is a small pay and display car park on Old Commercial Road. Alternatively, cars can park in the All Saints Car Park (also pay and display) on Church Road, where it’s a short 200m walk to the museum.

Small coaches can drop off outside the museum (via Nelson Road and Victoria Street) but there is no coach parking facilities at the museum.
