Info about House of Agnes

The House of Agnes was a travellers inn as far back as the 13th Century, and is so named as it was the home of Agnes Wickfield in Charles Dickens’ story David Copperfield. Several passages in the book describe aspects of both the exterior and interior of our historic building.

In 1934 famous American MGM movie producer David O. Selznick (Gone with the Wind) and director George Cukor (Director, Gone with the Wind) visited this house to be sure of originality when filming the first ever Hollywood movie of David Copperfield. They were photographed in front of our door (below). MGM even filmed the exterior of Canterbury Cathedral which appears in the film for less than a minute!
