Day 2 - "Call the Midwife" Chatham Historic Dockyard

If you’re a fan of the hit series and you’ve been wondering where Call the Midwife is filmed, put yourself in the picture and explore where the real drama happens with
a Call the Midwife Official Location Tour.

Created in partnership with award-winning television production company, Neal Street Productions, our Call The Midwife Official Location Tour is the only one of its kind in
the world. Whilst the show is set in the East End of London, many of the
outside scenes from the BBC series are actually filmed at
The Historic Dockyard Chatham in Kent.

Walk in the footsteps of Nurse Trixie Franklin, Sister Julienne and Dr Turner and explore where the real drama happens. You will be guided through the Historic Dockyard
by your very own costumed Midwife, armed with aphotograph book and
tales of their ‘sisters’, before being allowed to explore the sets,
costumes and props in the all-new, exclusive gallery.



You’ll see just how Neal Street Productions transform 400 year old Chatham dockyard into East London. Along the tour you’ll recognise the cobbled streets and buildings of
‘Poplar’ plus iconic locations such as the Grosvenor Hotel and ‘Chummy’s Hill’,
where Nurse Noakes famously learnt to ride her bike.


Chatham Historic Dockyard is a maritime museum on part of the site of the
former royal naval dockyard at Chatham.

The Dockyard covered 400 acres and was one of the Royal Navy's main facilities for
several hundred years until it was closed in the early 1980's.

 

Return to the ‘Age of Sail’ when the Dockyard built mighty ships that
toured the world’s oceans.

Test your sea legs on HMS OCELOT, a Cold War Submarine; explore HMS CAVALIER, a Second World War Destroyer and walk the deck of HMS GANNET, our Victorian Sloop.

Watch our Master Ropemakers at work using centuries old techniques
on our iconic Ropewalk and explore our brand new Ropery gallery.

Your entry includes a guided coach tour of the dockyard and the "Call The Midwife" tour.

 

Day 3 - Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway

our World Famous one-third full size Steam & Diesel locomotives have
powered their way along the 13½ miles of track from the
Cinque Port town of Hythe, terminating in Dungeness;
a National Nature Reserve and one of the
largest shingle landscapes in the world
