Led by your very own ‘midwife’ this guided tour visits areas of the dockyard that have been used as locations for the popular television drama series ‘Call the Midwife’.
Throughout all five series, The Historic Dockyard Chatham has been transformed into 1950’s Poplar Dock many times and has had countless scenes involving the show’s stars, including Miranda Hart and Jenny Agutter, filmed across it’s 80 acre site.
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.
