The perfect day out
Season 9 of BAFTA nominated Call the Midwife might have come to a close but the Call the Midwife Official Location tours at The Historic Dockyard Chatham are in full swing.
If you’re a fan of the hit series, a trip to see where Call the Midwife is filmed should be top of your bucket list.
Walk in the footsteps of Nurse Trixie Franklin, Sister Julienne and Dr Turner and explore where the real drama happens. The walking tour is led by your very own costumed midwife. Along the tour you’ll recognise the cobbled streets and buildings of ‘Poplar’ plus iconic locations such as the Grosvenor Hotel and ‘Chummy’s Hill’, where Nurse Noakes famously learnt to ride her bike. With a picture book to help trigger your memories, you’ll see just how Neal Street Productions transform 400 year old Chatham dockyard into to 1950’s East London. The tour culminates with our exclusive Call the Midwife exhibition containing set, props and costumes.

Seeing where my favourite series was filmed was a surreal experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the series and the filming locations and told us of what she saw herself when it was being filmed at the Dockyard. It was great to see the locations where Poplar was created and an interesting insight to how the television program was made. As a huge fan of Call the Midwife, I loved it! It is a must see if you love the show, and the Dockyards are great to walk around on a sunny day.
