0 Best Chatham Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Chatham is best known for its contribution to trade with its historic dockyard. Those who carefully watch Call the Midwife might recognise it from the hit BBC drama, where much of the series was filmed. If you’re not a fan, you might instead be enticed by Chatham’s historical appeal. Chatham has had a large involvement in British boats over the years, including the HMS Cavalier which has now been turned into a museum. In close proximity to the town is the beautiful Rochester Cathedral, and there’s plenty more to see in the various museums around the area.

Top Attractions

The top attraction in Chatham is the Historic Dockyard Chatham where there are eighty acres containing many naval and maritime historical exhibits. The famous HMS Victory was built in the yard, remembered for being the ship that Admiral Horatio Nelson sailed in the Battle of Trafalgar. At one time, thousands of men worked at this dockyard. Today the museum demonstrates 400 years of Naval history, shows you things like how to work rope, and allows access to HMS Cavalier, HMS Gannet, and the Ocelot.

Kids & Family

For a day out all the family will enjoy, go to Napoleonic Fort Amherst. After 300 years of history, there are endless tunnels, buildings and fortifications to explore. Ghost tours are the rage here, with the Fort being one of Kent’s most haunted locations. Don’t get lost in the underground passageways without a torch because you may not be alone. The kids will also enjoy Flip Out, the local trampoline park.
