Hop on down to The Historic Dockyard Chatham from the 3rd-17th April for some egg-tastic family fun!
The Captain’s Cat is back with an eggcellent egg hunt that’s bigger and better than ever before! Hidden amongst the 80 acre site will be The Dockyard’s rope eggs just waiting to be found by eager explorers.
Just pick up your Easter trail upon arrival for clues towards where to find them; find them all and crack the code hidden with them and you’ll get a prize!
These rope eggs have been made from The Dockyard’s very own Victorian Ropery! Rope has been made there for 400 years and is still made on the Ropewalk today making it the only one of the original four Royal Navy Ropeyards to remain in operation, and on Mondays to Fridays approx. 12:30pm you can see a live demonstration yourself of the mysterious craft of ropemaking live in action!
You can also book onto free tours at the plan your visit desk to “learn the ropes” with a foreman from 1875 to discover with the ropewalk is nearly ¼ mile long!
All included within your annual ticket, its family fun not to be missed!
