The Domesday Book first recorded the town as “Ceteham”. It stands on the A2 road along the line of the ancient Celtic route, originally paved by the Romans. Much of the town developed around the dockyard itself, which came to be known for the building of HMS Victory. The shipyard eventually closed in 1984 but today remains a popular tourist attraction.
Venture slightly out of Chatham, and you have many more choices for activities. In Rochester, for example, there is its iconic castle and cathedral, as well as its connections to Charles Dickens.
In Gillingham, meanwhile, there is the chance to see the home of the Royal Engineers’. Alternatively, stay where you are and visit one of many Afternoon Tea Chatham venues.
