Chatham Historic Dockyard

Chatham Historic Dockyard in Medway

Let your hearts set sail through the tides of history. A fantastic day out in Kent awaits.

Return to the ‘Age of Sail’ when the Dockyard built mighty ships that toured the world’s oceans.

Test your sea legs on HMS OCELOT, a Cold War Submarine; explore HMS CAVALIER, a Second World War Destroyer and walk the deck of HMS GANNET, our Victorian Sloop.

Watch our Master Ropemakers at work using centuries old techniques on our iconic Ropewalk and explore our brand new Ropery gallery.

With 400 years of heritage and 80 acres to explore, a little bit of planning before you arrive can help you maximise your visit.
Our great value general admission tickets are valid for 1 year, meaning you pay for your first visit and then you can return again (and again!) for free with your annual pass.
