The Historic Dockyard Chatham

A place like no other…

Just 35 miles from central London, discover how ships, including HMS Victory, were designed and built.  Climb aboard a sloop, a destroyer and a submarine.  Get hands-on in the Ropery, where rigging for HMS Victory was made and where rope is still made today.  Explore galleries that unfurl the secrets of Great Britain’s magnificent maritime past and its command of the oceans.
