Get ready to take the family on a fun and educational journey into Chatham's legendary, centuries-long shipbuilding heritage with a visit to the award-winning Historic Dockyard Chatham. Tickets are valid for one year, giving you plenty of time to explore unique exhibitions and collections and take part in exciting events and seasonal activities throughout the year, and with Picniq you save up to 33%.

 The Historic Dockyard Chatham is on an 80-acre site with over 100 historic buildings and structures and 3 mighty warships. Learn how ships such as HMS Victory were built and explore the four Command of the Oceans interactive galleries which reveal long-hidden objects for the first time. Walk the decks of 3 historic warships and discover what life was like for those who worked on board a Second World War Destroyer, Cold War submarine, and Victorian Sloop.

 Visit the Ropery, one of the only remaining Royal Navy Ropeyards in operation today, and learn how rope has been made at Chatham for almost four centuries. Explore the UK's largest collection of historic RNLI Lifeboats to learn how these remarkable vessels have changed over the last 100 years. 

The Steam, Steel, and Submarines gallery includes interactive exhibits re-telling the history of Chatham Dockyard, and the No. 1 Smithery with its rugged industrial feel and vast anchor pits encourage guests to uncover incredible stories through play, objects, and paintings. When built in 1838, the huge No. 3 Covered Slip was the largest wide-span timber structure in Europe. Today it houses a vast array of vehicles and objects from the Royal Engineers Museum and Imperial War Museums.

 There are three exciting tours included with your entry ticket. These include:

  •  The Ropery tour where you'll  'learn the ropes' with hands-on ropemaking.
  • The HM Submarine Ocelot tour where visitors can swing through the hatches and learn what life was like onboard one of the last Royal Navy warships to be built at Chatham.
  • The Hearts of Oak tour - an audio-visual tour through a walking cinema telling the story of a real dockyard worker.


Plus! The Historic Dockyard Chatham plays host to an impressive array of events and seasonal activities throughout the year, including special workshops and pop-up talks. Several play areas and exciting events are designed to keep little ones entertained.
