These are just a drop in the ocean of the things that you’ll discover within the Historic Dockyard Chatham. You’ll be pleased your ticket is an annual pass.

“Wow!” was the first thing I thought, as we were shown into the exhibition…and not just because the air conditioning was AMAZING after being outside in 37°C heat.

LEGO! The Historic Dockyard, Chatham is holding an exhibition that journeys through time in models made from Lego. Something that made both Will and I super excited when we arrived and saw the banner!

If you haven’t been to the Dockyards before, you’re in for a treat-I have a feeling I visited when I was a lot younger, but it all seemed very new to me, and it was the children’s first visit.

Our day out to The Historic Dockyard Chatham

It’s been years that have passed since my eyes struck the docks.
The memories I held were from fairs with coins and antique clocks.

I remember metal detecting and being extremely cold,
Thinking this place is boring and full of the old!

During the half term holiday we visited the Historic Dockyard Chatham for the day, along with some friends and their children (all aged 3 and 4).

Visited October 2018

As a 400-year-old dock yard, Chatham Dockyard might not be your first thought when looking for a day out with children

But I had heard great things about it from friends so when Chatham Dockyard invited us to go for the day I jumped at the chance.

I didn’t expect the Dockyard to be so big and for there to be so many things to do there.

“Where do I start with what there is to see and do. I could probably fill a whole book with how much is there, but most people will visit for a day, so let me tell you about the highlights”

“What I didn’t expect was to be blown over by everything else the Historic Dockyard is; what it has to offer and the frankly overwhelming historical presence of the place, and the stories that seep from every element of the site.”

“We’ve been a fan of the Historic Dockyard in Chatham since our first visit last Summer, so we were thrilled when the team there invited us back to experience their half term activities.  On Sunday morning, we piled into the car and headed down to Kent – just an hour from our South London home…. “

“I’m often surprised at how easy it is to get to attractions in places outside London. We live south of the Thames. Yesterday it took us only 45 minutes to drive to the Historic Dockyard at Chatham, where we’d been invited to join in with Doc Yard’s Secret Lab.”

“If you’re not too familiar with it, the Dockyard in Chatham is a family attraction celebrating all the best of Britain’s maritime heritage. Or put it another way – three battleships, a one-time spy submarine and huge hangers full of boats. As far as my son was concerned we’d definitely saved the best summer trip til last.”
