Group bookings

Kicthen at the Charles Dickens Museum

We welcome groups of all ages and our staff are happy to help you make the most of your visit.

To ensure that all of our visitors have an enjoyable experience, we request that any group of 10 or more people are booked with us in advance. We regret that in most cases we are unable to admit groups that have not been booked prior to arrival may be. As the Museum is an historic terraced house with limited space, our maximum group size is 45 people.

So that all our visitors enjoy the intimate ambience of Dickens's home, groups of more than 10 people will be split as follows:

  • 10 – 15 people = 1 timeslot
  • 15 – 30 people = 2 timeslots with a 30 min interval between each
  • 30 – 45 people = 3 timeslots with a 30 min interval between each

A visit to the Museum usually lasts between 1 and 1.5 hours.


All group visits to the Museum are self guided and we regret that Museum tours are not possible during normal opening hours due to the intimate nature of Dickens's family home. We ask that each group is accompanied by a responsible group leader.

As the Museum is located on a residential street, we do not have large areas for groups to wait prior to entry so we ask that each split group arrive only at their designated entry time.  We are happy to suggest places for larger groups to wait prior to arrival and our staff are happy to provide any other information to help make your group visit a pleasurable one.

Due to the high volume of visitors in December group bookings will not be taken after Friday 9th December.


Pre-Booked Group Admission Rate: £6.00 per person.
One Group Coordinator per Group receives free admission.
