Dickens in Rochester 3

In Crow Lane, just off Rochester’s High Street, fans of Great Expectations can see the original version of Satis House, where Miss Havisham lived.

Built in 1587, in Elizabethan red brick style, it is now known as Restoration House, because King Charles II stayed the night there on his way to London to be restored to the monarchy.

The house is open on Thursday and Friday from June to September, but Dickens fans will be happy enough just to view it from the street.
