The Historic Dockyard Chatham has three play areas for our visitors to enjoy.

The free to enter play area located by our visitor admissions entrance allows children to learn through play as they explore their own ‘Historic Dockyard’.

Our ‘Outdoor Adventure’ Play Area is located opposite Commissioner’s House and close to the Victorian Ropery. This position makes it the ideal spot to break up your visit and perhaps stop for a picnic.



For our smaller visitors there is the soft play area, located in our Railway Workshop Refuel and Play space, alongside our Dockyard locomotive workshop. On occasions you’ll see the ‘Engineer’ at work carrying our maintenance on our trains which you can see rumble through the site each month.


We are closed!
