Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens!
Today is Charles Dickens’ birthday, and to celebrate the life of such a great writer and humanitarian, why not take the time to immerse yourself in some – or all – of his written works?
You can also visit his birthplace which will be making a rare winter opening today to celebrate the great man’s birthday: – http://www.visitportsmouth.co.uk/site/whats-on/charles-dickens-birthday-celebrations-p355031
Or, weather permitting, you could even go on a guided walk of the area.
And for the most devoted of fans out there, you can now buy a Charles Dickens action figure, complete with removable top hat and quill!
