We are pleased to announce that we are now working in partnership with the creators of Call the Midwife, Neal Street Productions to launch the OFFICIAL Call the Midwife tours!
Now in its seventh year, Call the Midwife regularly captures the hearts of over 10 million TV viewers who tune in to watch the much loved programme. However, little do those viewers know that here at The Historic Dockyard Chatham it has been the backdrop for many of the show’s most iconic scenes.
We are very excited that the new tour will be re-worked and overseen by the show’s producers and will be available from 7th April onwards. It will feature material from the latest series, as well as props, costumes, set and of course our very own costumed midwife! – The tour lasts for 90 minutes.
This is a walking tour with some uneven surfaces, please ensure you are wearing comfortable foot wear. It is wheelchair friendly but please advise us in advance if you have any mobility issues and we will accommodate you the best we can.

We did indeed enjoy our visit to Chatham. Not only was the Midwife tour excellent with our 'Midwife' guide most entertaining we also spent another 3 hours in the dockyard visiting the ships and submarine before going on the Ropery tour where the guide was fantastic. She portrayed the character of the spinner brilliantly. It was a shame that we could not stay longer but we had a 3 hour drive back to Nottinghamshire and as we had been away for 4 weeks we were anxious not to to be too late home.
We did a Call the Midwife tour which was excellent (even our friends who had never watched the programme enjoyed it)
We were bought a call the midwife tour as a gift. What a wonderful day. NAT our tour guide was very informative and funny. The tour lasted 90 minutes and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing the locations where the series was filmed. As the set had been removed NAT explained how they transformed the site to film the series. After lunch we looked around the rest of the site. Well worth a visit.
Went on a virgin experience day for Call the Midwife tour. Was not disappointed. The tour was well guided, entertaining and informative. We spent the rest of the day clambering aboard a destroyer, a submarine and a lifeboat and toured the site looking at army vehicles , and machinery. There was also a very interesting museum Something for everyone. Places to eat and toilets all near and free parking.. Whats not to like.
