Things To Do

South & South East Region | Day trip to Chatham Dockyard

06 Nov 2021
8:00AM - 7:00PM

For 400 years, the Royal Dockyard at Chatham made ships for the Royal Navy, including the nation’s most loved, HMS VICTORY.  Today laughter, smiles and memories are made there.

During our visit we will take part in the Official Call the Midwife Tour.  Our very own midwife will take us to various areas used as the locations for many of the scenes in the popular TV series.  We will also experience life as a Victorian Ropemaker on a tour with a costumed guide.  We will have the chance to make our own rope before seeing the dramatic ¼ mile long ropewalk.

Other areas within the dockyard to visit are the No1 Smithery which included World-class collections from Royal museums Greenwich and the Imperial War Museum.  There are three historic warships, HMS Cavalier (1944) a second World War Destroyer, HMS Gannet (1978) a Victorian Naval sloop and HM Submarine Ocelot (1962) the last Submarine built at Chatham for the Royal Navy. Plus many other sights to see and history to explore.

The Railway Workshop is a space to enjoy a picnic which you can either take with you or visit the Wagon Stop canteen to find your supplies.
