Call the Midwife tours

Groups who love Call the Midwife can now book the official locations tours which are running at the Historic Dockyard Chatham in Kent.

The cast of the popular television programme officially opened the tours on 3rd May. The Dockyard is celebrating its 400th birthday this year and these experiences are just one of the attraction’s major tourism offerings in this landmark year.

Dame Pippa Harris, Call the Midwife’s executive producer, commented: "The Historic Dockyard Chatham has been our home for many years and I’m delighted to be sharing it with all the wonderful Call the Midwife fans in celebration of its 400th birthday!"

What will group see on the tour?

Call The Midwife has been capturing the hearts of over ten million TV viewers who, for seven series have tuned in each week to watch the much-loved programme. Many of the show’s iconic scenes feature the Historic Dockyard Chatham as a backdrop.

The tour, which has been re-worked and overseen by the show’s producers, features material from the latest series, as well as props, costumes, replica set and even a costumed midwife.

You’ll get to see sites that feature in iconic scenes, such as where Chummy learnt to ride a bike, and the ship which Sister Evangelina and Trixie had to climb aboard to help the Captain’s daughter give birth.

The walking tour lasts for 90 minutes and is wheelchair friendly, although GTOs should advise ahead of time if there are possible mobility issues.

The tours are running until October, and groups can book to take them privately. Plus, GTOs are welcome to a fam visit to discover what there is throughout the Dockyard, which is said to be the only place in the world that lets you explore a complete dockyard from the age of sail and beyond.
