The Historic Dockyard Chatham

Brace yourself for a voyage into the ‘Age of Sail’, when the Chatham Dockyard was one of Britain’s most crucial centers of warship building and repair.

It’s hard to believe, but over 400 warships were built on this very spot, allowing the Royal Navy to assert its dominance over the seas of Europe and beyond. Today, it stands as the world’s most complete dockyard of the Age of Sail.

Don’t forget to pack your sea legs, as you’ll need them to peer through the periscope of a Cold War Submarine, take command of the bridge of a Second World War Destroyer, and ring the ship’s bell aboard a Victorian Sloop.

But that’s not all, folks! You’ll also have the chance to immerse yourself in the fascinating history of naval warfare, as well as witness firsthand the incredible feats of engineering and innovation that made the Royal Navy the most powerful maritime force on the planet.

And if that’s not enough to satisfy your thirst for adventure, explore the UK’s largest collection of RNLI Historic Lifeboats before trying your hand at Victorian ropemaking.

This is not your average day trip, so get ready for an unforgettable journey through time!
