A significant site of international maritime heritage and the most complete Dockyard of the Age of Sail in the world.
Eighty acres in size, the Historic Dockyard Chatham has over 100 buildings and structures – the majority of which were constructed between 1704 and 1855.
Today it is the most complete Dockyard of the Age of Sail in the world and its fine architecture and technically advanced buildings and structures are a joy to behold and enjoy.
One of Britain’s leading maritime heritage attractions, with Three Historic Warships, a working Victorian Ropery, Historic Lifeboat Collection, Dockyard Railway, Hearts of Oak digital theater, and play areas, plus magnificent collections from two national museums.
New interactive galleries take you on a voyage back to the ‘age of sail’, where powerful stories are unearthed to reveal the incredibly important historical role of Chatham Dockyard.
For generations, the dockyard was a secret and secure site – now it is open and just waiting for you to explore.
