[edit] Information

What has become of the gloomy, majestic house in Rochester where the skeletal Miss Havisham resided? Does Joe Gargery’s cottage still stand in Chalk? And what became of the notorious Bowes Academy, the harshest of the Yorkshire schools now known to the world as Dotheboys Hall?

Sir Derek Jacobi for the very first time takes you on a journey through Charles Dickens' England, exploring the settings where the Victorian author’s most famous stories unravelled.

Discovering all the most important places, towns and cities that were the inspiration to some of the most famous settings in literature, we feature well over 100 locations, including the Cooling Church in Kent used in the opening chapter of Great Expectations and the almost forgotten London Roman Baths used by David Copperfield.

Many of the locations, such as the interior of 58 Lincoln's Inn Fields where Dickens first read in public, the All The Year Round offices in Covent Garden where he lived and worked and Gad's Hill in Kent, the last in a very long list of his homes, are simply not open to the public and have rarely been filmed.

Travelling from Portsmouth to Isle of Wight to numerous London locations, to Bury St Edmonds, Rochester and Chatham, to Broadstairs, Folkestone, and Barnard Castle to St George’s Hall in Liverpool, Derek Jacobi leads this mammoth expedition around Charles Dickens’ England before visiting the author's final resting place in Poets' Corner at Westminster Abbey.
