Dickens' Birthplace Museum
On the way to Portsmouth, I stopped by at this small house which is in the middle of a very modern council estate, and is where Charles Dickens was born in 1812. Although this place is not haunted (as far as I know) I feel Dickens deserves an honourable mention on my blog because he loved a ghost story as much as anyone else.
This museum contains many interesting objects, and is owned by the council. Unfortunately there is no up to date guide book and they do not appear to maintain it as well as could be.
The green couch is where Dickens died.
