Groups can walk in the footsteps of Call the Midwife characters for the official tour at The Historic Dockyard Chatham throughout 2024. 

Stars of the BBC series Call the Midwife

The much-loved BBC series returned to our screens on 7th January for its 13th season. 

The historic venue in Kent has announced the return of its popular Call The Midwife Official Location Tour which will run from March until October this year.

Fans of the beloved BBC series, which has just started its 13th season, will have the opportunity to step behind-the-scenes into the actual filming locations including the renowned Grosvenor Hotel and Chummy’s Hill where Nurse Noakes famously learnt to ride her bike. 

Members of your group will walk in the footsteps of Sister Julienne, Nurse Trixie Franklin, Chummy, and Dr Turner as they explore the cobbled streets and historic buildings of the Dockyard and how it is transformed into East London for the drama.
