The fantastic Charles Dickens Museum has this December re-opened in London after completion of the ‘Great Expectations’ renovation project.
The Charles Dickens Museum is set to be an even more popular choice for school trips as it now offers a brand new visitor experience and learning possibilities. The beautifully restored museum has re-opened its doors after a £3.1m upgrade, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Renovations to the author’s former Bloomsbury home have included the doubling in size of the museum, restoration of the house at 48 Doughty Street, opening of the house’s attic and kitchen for the first time, and expansion of the museum into the neighbouring 49 Doughty Street. In addition, new learning spaces have been created allowing the facilitation of workshops which will be great news for school trips studying English Literature and Drama.
On your school trip to the museum, your students will be able to explore the house where Dickens was born, and penned much of his famous work including Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby. Each room reflects a different part of Dicken’s world and provides a fitting setting to inspire a group of students learning English Literature and Drama.
School trip groups can experience a series of interactive activities, self-guided tours in addition to taught workshops at the Dickens Museum on your school trip. This provides an excellent base for English and Drama school trips to London, with other visits including West End shows, theatre workshops, Shakespeare’s Globe and more.
