Reduced price tickets
The Historic Dockyard Chatham has been an important part of the lives of Medway residents for over 400 years. In the lead up to the 40th anniversary of the closure of the working dockyard, we want as many local people as possible to be able to enjoy a day out with us, to experience climbing aboard our historic warships, seeing the last remaining operational ropewalk, getting hands on in our galleries and connecting with the stories of the past.
To help people who might find cost a barrier to visiting The Historic Dockyard Chatham, our Universal Credit and Pension Credit tickets provide entry at a reduced price.
A limited number of tickets are available for Medway residents each day for £2 per person (children aged 3 and under are free).
- Your photo will be taken upon arrival to link to your ticket. We do this to ensure that tickets are assigned to the correct people when revisiting. Photos are only stored for the duration of your annual ticket and are deleted in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.
- These tickets are not valid for the Medway Gaming Festival, Salute to the ’40s, Mission Christmas or Call the Midwife Official Location Tours.
- We accept a number of vouchers and discount codes, please check the full list before visiting: discounts & vouchers that we accept
- We make every effort to keep all areas of the Historic Dockyard open at all times. On a small number of days certain areas need to be closed to visitors or access limited. Please check our “Site Notices & Closures” page prior to your visit to avoid disappointment on the day.
