The Ropery indicating its length

The Historic Dockyard Chatham, the world’s most complete dockyard of the Age of Sail and one of Britain’s leading maritime heritage destinations is delighted to offer ‘heritage hunters’ a unique chance to take a ‘behind the scenes’ look at one of the most admired aspects of the dockyard. Visitors who pre-book a Heritage Open Day on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September will be given the opportunity to visit the ‘factory floor’ of Master Ropemakers, located within the Victorian Ropery Building.

This tour is free of charge but must be pre-booked by calling 01634 823845. They have limited places so early booking is recommended. Normal admission prices apply to the rest of The Historic Dockyard galleries and attractions.
