Leaving a gift for generations to come...


Making a will is the most efficient way to ensure your family and friends know your wishes and have what they need at this difficult time. It is also an effective way to recognise a cause close to your heart by leaving a gift.

Imagine leaving a gift that could truly last for generations, a gift that means your generosity can allow others to enjoy Chatham’s World Class Heritage for future generations – just like you do now.

Leaving a legacy in your will to Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust could make that difference. Every single gift in your will, however large or small, counts. At the Historic Dockyard Chatham, we’ve been dedicated to looking after this unique 80 acre site, it’s internationally significant buildings and 3 historic warships for more than 30 years, so you can be sure that every penny you choose to leave in our care will be well invested in keeping the site accessible for generations to come.

If you are interested in leaving a gift in your will, or would like more information, please contact us:

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.
