Historic Dockyard, Chatham,Chatham Information
World Naval Base, Chatham is Europe's most exciting maritime heritage destination. The 80 acre site dates back over 400 years and was once one of Britain's most important naval bases. Historic Warships! displays three powerful fighting ships - H.M.S. Cavalier, Britain's last remaining W.W.II destroyer, the spy submarine Ocelot and the last Victorian sloop, Gannet. Guided tours around the destroyer and submarine reveal what life was like for those on board and are included in the price. The Wooden Walls animatronic gallery allows visitors to walk through the Royal Dockyard of 1758 and discover how Britain's wooden warships were built. Lifeboat! tells the heroic story of the R.N.L.I. with an exciting display of 15 full size lifeboats, film and artefacts. In the Ropery craftsmen still use traditional techniques to make the rope that still rigs the world's grandest sailing ships. The Kent Police Museum, a brewery, licensed restaurants and gift shops are also on site.
