The Historic Dockyard Chatham online: information and bookings

Steeped in history, this award winning maritime heritage attraction is the world’s most complete dockyard from the age of sail and is home to a remarkable range of museum galleries, iconic buildings and historic warships; together with an excellent programme of family activities, outstanding exhibitions and events throughout the year.

Imagine what life was like as a rope maker and make your own piece of rope on the authentic Victorian Ropery Tour. In ‘Hearts of Oak’ digital theatre, you will join retired Master Shipwright John North as he revisits the Dockyard of his youth and encourages his young grandson to follow in his footsteps. You will be gripped by stories of life aboard Three Historic Warships and explore Steam Steel and Submarines which tells the powerful story of the 19th and 20th Century dockyard. A collection of really BIG ‘things’ in 3 Slip The BIG Space is unearthed and visitors will marvel at the incredible wooden roof structure.

Heroic stories are told in the RNLI Historic Lifeboat Collection and for those who would like a little peace and quiet, a visit the tranquil Commissioner's garden is a must. The children can let off steam in the Railway Workshop Refuel and Play indoor soft play or the outdoor adventure play areas. A visit would not be complete without a journey through No. 1 Smithery - an all-round treasure house for the whole family. It has brilliant galleries displaying world class maritime treasures from both the National Maritime Museum and Imperial War Museums and it is where the temporary exhibitions can be found.
