Thursday 17th August

A visit to The Historic Dockyard Chatham – one of Britain’s leading maritime heritage destinations and the world’s most complete dockyard from the ‘age of sail’ – will prove to be quite an adventure.

Step aboard the Three Historic Warships and discover over 100 years of life at sea. Don't miss the Victorian Naval Sloop HMS Gannet, Second World War Destroyer HMS Cavalier, and Cold War Submarine Ocelot!  

Explore Steam Steel and Submarines which tells the powerful story of the 19th and 20th Century dockyard and find yourself at the heart of Chatham's incredible shipbuilding heritage; imagine life as a Victorian Rope Maker as you visit the quarter-mile long Ropery that has been making rope for Britain's ships since 1618, plus the fantastic digital theatre experience in the Hearts of Oak gallery as you join retired Master Shipwright John North as he revisits the Dockyard of his youth and encourages his young grandson to follow in his footsteps.

Delve into the treasure house that is No. 1 Smithery which showcases exciting collections from Royal Museums Greenwich and Imperial War Museums! Keeping Britain Afloat  provides a snapshot of extraordinary and insightful memories from over fifty veterans from the Second World War.
