Are you ready for a sensational summer day out?


We’ve enjoyed great days out at The Historic Dockyard Chatham in previous years. They put a lot of thought and attention into their family events, which makes it a brilliant place to visit. This summer is set to be no exception, with two amazing attractions alongside the amazing boats and submarines. There’s also a soft play, cafe and outdoor playgrounds.

Ready for fun with Doc Yard’s Summer Show?


In an all-new interactive performance complete with live science experiments, scientist Doc.Yard, along with able assistant Bunsen, investigate how forces shaped the Dockyard (31 July – 30 August). After taking part, young visitors will leave being able to answer questions like ‘How can a ship weighing thousands of tonnes float on water?’ and ‘Which falls faster a feather or a hammer?’

Do you have what it takes?

Mission Explore: Climb the Ranks (available daily), is a new and exciting challenge-based
programme inviting children of all ages to join the Chatham crew as a Cadet and progress
through the ranks to Admiral. At the end of the season, one lucky family will win an exclusive
tour with real-life Admiral of the Fleet, Sir Trevor Soar’s on warship HM Submarine Ocelot.

Tickets for The Historic Dockyard Chatham are available to book online. What’s extra brilliant is that once you’ve bought your tickets, you can visit as many times as you like within a year, without paying again!
