Big learning day out

The Historic Dockyard Chatham is a remarkable place. It is a place that lets you explore a complete dockyard from the heyday of the age of sail and beyond. It’s a unique destination that celebrates Great Britain’s magnificent maritime past and its command of the oceans. It offers unrivaled access to ships that helped shape the world, and the stories of the people who made them. It’s a place of fun and fascination. Of surprising discoveries. Of stirring tales of boldness and daring. A place like no other.
