Planning ahead for a better future

Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is committed to good governance and continues to undertake regular reviews of its structures and policies. It recognises the role of trustees in setting strategy and holding the Executive to account for delivery against strategy and specific operational plans. In a complex operating environment, the breadth of experience required from trustees to ensure that obligations are met is extensive. The Board is always mindful of the need for the trustee body of eleven to have the appropriate practical experience and knowledge to meet the diverse demands placed on the Trust.



Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust has 11 Trustees and the Board is chaired by Admiral Sir Ian Garnett KCB.

Patrons/Vice Patrons

We are fortunate to receive the patronage of a number of influential individuals, including HRH The Prince of Wales.

Notice to Visitors

Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust welcomes the news that museums and visitor attractions are able to reopen to visitors from 4 July.

We are actively planning to welcome visitors back to the Dockyard as soon as we are safely able to do so but this will be some time after 4 July.

We will make a further announcement to confirm the exact date as soon as we can.

In the meantime, much of Dockyard life has never stopped. Master Ropemakers has started operating again and we are taking forward bookings for filming, group travel and hospitality, including weddings. Call the Midwife Official Location Tours will resume shortly.

We would like to thank all our visitors for their understanding during this challenging period.
