Bleak House Museum

Bleak House was originally called Fort House and was the residence of the captain of one of two coastal forts guarding Broadstairs. Author Charles Dickens spent many summer holidays at Fort House in the 1850s and 1860s and it was here in that "airy nest" overlooking Viking Bay that he wrote perhaps his most famous work, David Copperfield.
