If you and your members enjoy the popular TV series Call the Midwife, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this unique experience, as The Historic Dockyard in Chatham becomes Poplar Docks in London’s East End during the 1950s
Led by your very own ‘midwife,’ this guided tour visits areas of the dockyard used for many scenes featured in the hit TV series.
Combine the tour with an exclusive afternoon tea in Commissioner’s House (1704), themed as the 1950s restaurant in the second series.
This popular package includes day admission to The Historic Dockyard, one of the UK’s leading maritime attractions, with its Victorian Ropery, three Historic Warships and many galleries and attractions.
2016 sees exciting changes and improvements, including a new car park, visitor entrance and facilities, a spectacular new restaurant and new interactive galleries to take groups on a voyage back to the Age of Sail, when Britain had Command of the Oceans.
Using the latest in exhibition design, powerful stories are unearthed, including ‘the ship beneath the floor’ – timbers from HMS Namur – revealing the incredibly important role Chatham Dockyard played during this extraordinary period of British History.
