Your voyage of discovery starts here
... a visit to The Historic Dockyard Chatham is a guaranteed adventure.
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.
Whilst we have reached Stage 4 of the Government’s COVID recovery plan and many rules have been relaxed, the threat of the virus remains high and we have a duty of care to keep all users of our historic estate safe. There are several safety measures that we have chosen to keep in place to help mitigate risk and ensure everyone has a safe but enjoyable visit to the Historic Dockyard. Please take a few moments to read our ‘KNOW BEFORE YOU GO’ information and our frequently asked questions.
Don’t forget to book your tickets and arrival time in advance.
Let your hearts set sail through the tides of history. A fantastic day out in Kent awaits.
