Staff at the visitors entrance located in the car park of The Historic Dockyard Chatham (Postcode: ME4 4UY) will give you a map of the site and information on where to meet the tour guide.

This activity will end right where it started.

As you make your way around the dockyard and some of the exterior sets of the popular show, listen to anecdotes about the show's filming, behind-the-scenes facts, and the history of Chatham Dockyard.

My views on the tour

I all way wanted to see were it was filmed. The lady that did the tour was very good she waited until we were all together before she spoke. It was great to be told how the seens were do and how the docks were changed into the 1960/1970

Enjoyed but lacked that little something!

It was lovely to see where they film the series. The museum where the props was really good. More signage needed to show where you book in. It is at the main desk opposite gravel car park. It is not an actual film studio it is within the history dock museum.

Very tenuous links to clips in episodes which was delivered with the enthusiasm of someone knowing the substance was inferior and needed overkill to sell it. Poor vfm

I bought this experience for my mum for Mother’s Day as she loves ‘call the midwife’. I love it too. My mum had an amazing day, the guide (Irene) was very knowledgable and how she remembered everything was very impressive. Absolutely fascinating tour, would definitely recommend. Now we are both inspired to wstch ALL call the midwife episodes again to spot some familiar surroundings!! Brilliant!!

The tour is not a true reflection on call the midwife, a tour guide shows you pictures of various scenes from the programme then points out where it was filmed The only part of the that refers to the series is a small are showing a few props

Our Midwife tour guide was amazing ! Knowledgable and friendly she made the whole experience a complete joy ! The little “ museum” of props and artefacts from the show was fascinating. If you are a fan of the show then this tour is a must !

We enjoyed all of it the guide was excellent We especially liked the display at the end. The only disappointment was being given a ticket for the submarine but were then not allowed to use it
