8th June 2019

Chatham Dockyard 13km from the main hotel was a Royal Navy Dockyard located on the River Medway in Kent. Established in Chatham in the mid-16th century, the dockyard subsequently expanded into neighbouring Gillingham (at its most extensive, in the early 20th century, two-thirds of the dockyard lay in Gillingham, one-third in Chatham). It came into existence at the time when, following the Reformation, relations with the Catholic countries of Europe had worsened, leading to a requirement for additional defences. For 414 years Chatham Royal Dockyard provided over 500 ships for the Royal Navy, and was at the forefront of shipbuilding, industrial and architectural technology. At its height, it employed over 10,000 skilled artisans and covered 400 acres (1.6 km²). Chatham dockyard closed in 1984, and 84 acres (340,000 m2) of the Georgian dockyard is open for us to see and explore, from rope making to boarding a submarine.

We will visit the Dockyard during the day and return to the Premier Inn for an evening group meal.

9th June 2019

Drive from the hotel in Chatham to Leeds Castle to visit the grounds and "The Loveliest Castle in the World". From here it is only 60km back to Dover.
