Your voyage of discovery starts here
... a visit to The Historic Dockyard Chatham is a guaranteed adventure.
Currently closed for the winter. See you soon.
Return to the ‘Age of Sail’ when the Dockyard built mighty ships that mastered the world’s oceans. Test your sea legs as you marvel at HMS Ocelot, a Cold War Submarine; explore HMS Cavalier, a Second World War Destroyer; walk the deck of HMS Gannet, our Victorian Sloop. Watch our Master Ropemakers at work using centuries old techniques on in our Victorian Ropery.
For your safety, and in line with the latest COVID-19 government guidelines, things are a little bit different to normal and there are a few changes to how you’ll explore our 80-acre site. Please read our KNOW BEFORE YOU GO page for the latest information.
Let your hearts set sail through the tides of history. A fantastic day out in Kent awaits.
