The details of Dickens’ early visits to Bath are shrouded in mystery and legend, and although Bath features prominently in The Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens seems to have loathed the place, describing it as a ‘mouldy old roosting place … which the dead have succeeded in rising and taking.’

Join us for a literary walk around Bath and discover what prompted Dickens’ complicated relationship with the city. We will meet for coffee and cake in the Bookshop at 10am, and set out at 10.30am. After the walk we reconvene at the Bookshop for refreshments, and you can redeem your voucher against a copy of Literary Walks in Bath.
