Canterbury, home to some of our country’s most fascinating stories, Canterbury is shaped by nature, history and its people. From Romans, to royalty, saints to knights and playwrights to pilgrims - you can create an exciting itinerary to explore Canterbury.

 

Return to the ‘Age of Sail’ when Chatham Historic Dockyard built mighty ships that mastered the world’s oceans. Test your sea legs as you marvel at HMS Ocelot, a Cold War Submarine; explore HMS Cavalier, a Second World War Destroyer; walk the deck of HMS Gannet, our Victorian Sloop. Watch the Master Ropemakers at work using centuries old techniques in the Victorian Ropery.

 

Chatham Historic Dockyard is also home to the ‘Call The Midwife’ Official Location Tour. If you’re a fan of the hit series, a trip to see where Call the Midwife is filmed should be top of your bucket list. Walk in the footsteps of Nurse Trixie Franklin, Sister Julienne and Dr Turner and explore where the real drama happens.
