Ever want to enter a world full of hunger, hackneyed accents, and criminals on the run? This 75,000-square-foot re-creation of a 19th-century Dickensian town, opened in 2007, fits the bill; you can tour the Marshalsea Prison, take old-time photographs at Peerybingle's Pawnbrokers, or ogle animatronic characters at the modern Britania Theatre with your little literary buff.

Best of the Strange: The most popular ride, the Great Expectations Boat Ride, replicates lovable convict Magwitch's escape from prison.
