How to present your vouchers

Printing your voucher from the comfort of your own home could not be easier! However we understand that it would be nice to give this as a present.  Please see our ideas below on giving our experiences:

Card & Frame

Print off your vouchers on card instead of paper to give it more of a quality feel. You can then put this in a photo frame to present!

The big box

Decorate a shoe box, or a gift box and fill it with tissue paper. Print off your voucher on card and hide it under the tissue paper. The box is then wrapped and ready to give! – they’ll have no idea!


Roll up the gift voucher and put it inside a balloon. Blow up the balloon (with helium if possible) and voila!

Christmas Parties

Venue Hire

With two beautiful wedding venues, and fantastic packages for both business and celebratory events, we have something here to offer for all occasions.



COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – Notice to Visitors

As with the rest of the world, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust is closely monitoring the evolving situation around the global pandemic of COVID-19.

It is with sadness that following UK Government guidelines we have closed our visitor attraction to the public until further notice.

This closure extends to Call the Midwife Official Location Tours and The Festival of Steam and Transport (12 – 13 April).

Whilst outside of our control, we apologise for any inconvenience caused during this difficult time and would like to thank all our visitors for their understanding during this challenging period.
