The Marlowe presents

Kent's Remarkable Writers

A free exhibition about the lives and works of Christopher Marlowe, Aphra Behn and Joseph Conrad.

Explore their connections to Canterbury and the very different worlds in which they lived, through objects and immersive activities (including the chance to dress-up as an Elizabethan actor and use a typewriter from Conrad’s time).

The exhibition’s collection includes historic items, and belongings from the personal collection of Joseph Conrad. Get even more out of your visit by visiting Marlowe’s Ghost, our immersive escape room experience themed around the life and death of Christopher Marlowe.
