The Historic Dockyard Chatham

Step into the heart of Chatham’s legendary ship building heritage and return to the ‘Age of Sail’, when the Dockyard built mighty ships that won command of the world’s oceans.

A visit to The Historic Dockyard Chatham – one of Britain’s leading maritime heritage destinations – is a guaranteed adventure.

Climb aboard! Test your sea legs as you peer through the periscope of a Cold War Submarine, command the bridge of a WWII Destroyer and ring the ship’s bell on the deck of a Victorian Sloop.

Visit the award-winning Command of the Oceans interactive gallery and uncover the secrets of the centuries old ship beneath the floor. Imagine the crash of the waves as you explore the UK’s largest collection of RNLI Historic Lifeboats and delve into the treasure house that is No. 1 Smithery, home to incredible collections from Royal Museums Greenwich and Imperial War Museums.

Gain first-hand experience of life on a Victorian dockyard and walk in the footsteps of the master ropemakers who have been making rope for Britain’s ships on the quarter-mile-long ropery since 1618.

For generations, the dockyard was a secret and secure site – now it is open and just waiting for you to explore.
