The Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is an independent charitable trust (No. 292101) which generates the majority of its operating income through its charitable and related trading activities.

It has achieved much in the last 30 years since its inception, none of which would have been possible without the generous support of many organisations both in terms of financial aid and help in kind. The Trust thanks all past supporters and looks forward to continuing links with them and developing new ones to further its purposes.


Income from our visitors is very important to the Trust’s work, whether through admissions, retail or catering – it all goes towards funding our charitable purposes.
