We took visitors to Bleak House today and were made feel welcome from the first moment. Maria took us through the house and explained everything. We thought she went above and beyond sharing her knowledge with us. Thank you Maria for making our visit exceptional.

Wonderful atmospheric house, smugglers museum is fascinating and to be able to experience the study where Dickens wrote some of his masterpieces is a very special experience. Staff could not be more helpful. Superb service.
