By Road:

Directions:  If you are using Satellite Navigation, insert the postcode ME4 4TY and use your Satellite Navigation system in conjunction with the brown tourist signs to the entrance of The Historic Dockyard Chatham.

NB:  When referring to “brown tourist signs” in the text below, this refers to both brown anchor signs and brown signs with the words “The Historic Dockyard” on.

The quickest and easiest route to The Historic Dockyard by road is via the A2/M2 Junction 1 then follow the brown tourist signs and use the A289 (Wainscott Bypass) and the Medway Tunnel straight to our front door.

The site is signposted from Junctions 1, 3 and 4 of the M2. Follow the brown tourist signs.

From Junctions 1 and 4 of the M2:

Follow the A289 to the Medway Tunnel. At the tunnel follow signs to Chatham and the brown tourist signs to the Visitor Entrance and car park at the north end of the site.

From Junction 3 of the M2 and Junction 6 of the M20:

Follow the signs to Chatham, A229, then A230 and A231 and the brown tourist signs to the Visitor Entrance and car park at the north end of the site.  This route will take you through Chatham Town Centre and therefore may be busier.
