Call the Midwife
Arrive at Chatham Historic Dockyard for a tour of a lifetime. Call the Midwife regularly captures the hearts of over 10 million viewers who tune in to watch the much-loved programme.
However, little do those viewers know that the historic Dockyard Chatham has been the backdrop for many of the shows’ most iconic scenes.
We are very excited to be offering this tour which has been re-worked by the shows’ producers.The tour features material from the latest series, as well as props, costumes, set and of course a costumed Midwife to lead your tour.
Get a sneak peak behind the scenes as you hear fascinating anecdotes about the filming of the show. Designed to represent the impoverished East End of London in the 1950’s and 60’s, the dockyards also have a fascinating history of their own. Walk along streets that were used to represent the slums of Poplar Dock, and walk in the footsteps of some of Miranda Hart and Jenny Agutter’s most memorable scenes.
Following your tour, enjoy a fish and chip lunch, served with tea or coffee, with cheesecake for dessert.
There is so much to see and do at Chatham Dockyard such as: Command of the Oceans, three Historic Warships (HMS Cavalier, HM Submarine Ocelot and HMS Gannet), the Victorian Ropery, RNLI historic lifeboat collection, No 1 Smithery (a joint project between the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, Royal Museums Greenwich and Imperial War Museums), Steam, Steel and Submarines (The Dockyard story through the industrial revolution and two World Wars) and 3 Slip: The Big Space. (the largest wide span timber structure in Europe).
