Under the care of Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, The Historic Dockyard Chatham offers unrivalled access to a place that built magnificent ships which shaped the world, and the inspiring stories of the people who made them.
The Historic Dockyard Chatham is much more than a museum and heritage site – it’s a place where over 100 businesses have chosen to locate, that over 400 people call home and where over 600 people study with the University of Kent.
As a registered charity that has over 140 staff and 300 volunteers, we aim to not only set the benchmark in maintaining excellence in the sympathetic preservation and use of The Historic Dockyard Chatham, its buildings, ships and collections through diverse re-use, but also to engage the widest possible audiences in learning about the significance and history of the former Royal Dockyard.
Our organisational culture strives for excellence across the board, delivering unmatched, inspirational and memorable experiences for everyone we interact with. We develop exciting and sustainable ways of re-using and reinventing The Historic Dockyard Chatham.
