The Historic Dockyard Chatham is an 80 acre heritage estate and from time to time we need to undertake routine maintenance and repairs to our buildings, historic ships and galleries. This is a necessary part of maintaining and making improvements to an internationally important heritage site and where possible, we aim to undertake maintenance work at times that minimise the impact on our visitor experience.
However, sometimes some small disruption can be inevitable and we would like to draw you attention to the following:
It is with sadness that following UK Government guidelines, we have closed our visitor attraction to the public from Wednesday 18th March 2020.
The wider Historic Dockyard site remains open for our commercial tenants and residents.
Please note that 3 Slip Mezzanine floor is currently closed to the public due to maintenance work.
Please note that HMS Gannet will open to the public at 11am on Sunday 19th April (Instead of the usual time of 10am)

The Historic Dockyard Chatham is now open to visitors.
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 take a moment to read our ‘KNOW BEFORE YOU GO‘ information.
