Site notices & SEASONAL Closures

Thank you to everyone that visited The Historic Dockyard Chatham in 2023. Please be aware that we have now closed for the season. We look forward to welcoming you back in February 2024.

Whilst the Dockyard has its winter rest, we have it on good authority from the North Pole that the elves have given special permission to open the magical doors to our secret substation this festive season. Join us for Mission Christmas: The Clausometer Catastrophe on from Saturday 25 November to Sunday 24 December. Tickets are selling fast and we urge early booking to avoid disappointment.

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 this page prior to your visit to avoid disappointment on the day. If you have any further questions, please contact us via
