Chatham Historic Dockyard Tours and Activities

2 Reviews
Chatham Historic Dockyard
Fans of British TV will probably recognize Chatham Historic Dockyard from shows like Mr Selfridge, Sherlock Holmes and Call the Midwife, and the vast naval complex is equally impressive both on and off screen. The 80-acre site is now an award-winning maritime attraction, including museums, restored vessels and exhibitions, and offers a fascinating 
insight into British naval history.

The star attractions of the dockyard are a series of three historic warships, the Victorian-era HMS Gannett, the WWII destroyer HMS Cavalier; and the cold war submarine HMS Cavalier, and visitors can get a glimpse into life at sea as they explore on-board. Additional highlights include the historic Ropery and Smithery; a collection of RNLI lifeboats; the aptly named BIG Space, which showcases the largest of the dockyard’s artifacts; and a series of exhibitions focusing on the dockyard’s history, its use by the Royal Navy and its role in WWII.
