On 7 February 1812, Oliver Twist author Charles Dickens was born right here in Portsmouth and is remembered in his birth home, now named Charles Dickens’ Birthplace.
Despite moving away from the city, the furniture, ceramics, glass, household objects and decorations have been re-created to favour the Regency style that Charles’s parents liked.
