We have ample parking for all visitors with space for up to 1,000 vehicles including an undercover facility in one of Europe’s oldest widespan metal structures (Slip 5) and outside at the South Mast Pond. There are dedicated parking bays for Blue Badge Holders. Simply follow the signs for visitor parking upon arrival.

Both car parks are located close to our main visitor entrance and offer step free access.

For visitors who purchase an annual ticket on or after 8 February 2020 – please be aware that from late Spring 2020 we will be introducing a small charge for the use of our car park for returning visitors (not first time visitors).  By supporting The Historic Dockyard Chatham through this small charge, you will be playing an important role in supporting the preservation of the most complete dockyard of the age of sail in the world and developing our award winning programmes for our visitors now and in the future.

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.
