Great Expectations for Dickens theme park

A theme park based on the life and work of author Charles Dickens is to be built in Kent, one of the men behind "Dickensworld" says.

The 60 million pound project will recreate the Victorian era when young children worked in sweatshops, Britain ruled over a vast empire and Dickens penned classic works like "Bleak House" and "The Pickwick Papers."

Young children in sweatshops? Maybe even chimney-sweepers? I think this stands a fair chance of edging out Disneyland.
