Raise the anchor and get ready to set sail for summer adventure. We’re pleased to announce The Historic Dockyard will be reopening to visitors from Saturday 25 July.
For your safety, and in line with the latest government guidelines, things will be different from your last visit and there will be a few changes to how you’ll explore our 80-acre site.
Please read our KNOW BEFORE YOU GO information before your visit. All visitors must book a ticket and arrival time in advance of each visit.
General admission tickets are valid for 1 year giving you access to our incredible site – allowing you to pay once and visit as many times as you like. All tickets must be booked in advance.
Please note that this ticket does not include Call the Midwife Official Location Tour.
If you’re a fan of the hit series, a trip to see where Call the Midwife is filmed should be top of your bucket list. The walking tour is led by your very own costumed midwife. The tour culminates with our exclusive Call the Midwife exhibition containing set, props and costumes.
Pay for a day and return again (and again!) for free. General admission tickets are valid for 1 year, giving you unlimited access to our incredible site with 3 historic ships, interactive museum galleries and 80 acres.

The Dockyard is open February – November with seasonal variations on our closing time. Please check our times before your visit.
