Itinerary

Day One

Leave the local area this morning, and journey to the ancient city of Canterbury. Discover the beautifully preserved cathedral, the 13th-century Greyfriars Chapel and Franciscan Gardens, and perhaps take a historic river tour - a popular way to experience the city - browse the wonderful independent shops along the King's Mile or visit the award-winning Canterbury Tales (all entry fees payable locally).

Day Two

Today, meet your 'midwife' for a 60-minute walking tour of the Historic Dockyard, Chatham - one of the main filming locations for 'Call the Midwife' when recreating the East End of the 1950s.

Afterwards, head off to explore more of this fascinating nautical heritage site. You'll find museum galleries, exhibitions, and three historic warships - all offering you the chance to uncover the history of life at sea.

After the chance to enjoy lunch we'll begin the journey home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Further Information

Call the Midwife tour

The 'Call the Midwife' tour takes place outside. Suitable footwear, clothing and an umbrella are recommended, in case of inclement weather.

Accessibility

Please note that some of Canterbury's streets are cobbled or uneven. Areas of the Dockyard have steps, slopes and uneven surfaces, and the actual construction of the warships means that there are plenty of steps, ladders and hatches. Those with mobility difficulties will not be able to access all areas.

Other events and excursions

Some of the tours at the Dockyard are timed, but it may be possible to book time slots on the day - the ropery demonstration will be pre-booked.

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

A good value break. The ropery was amazing seeing how rope was made years ago and is still made today. Also whilst we were there Call the Midwife were setting out props for filming making the future programme more interesting for us as we saw it being set up.

In spite of the long journey the trip was so well planned that the time didn't drag at all! The Call the Midwife tour was excellently conducted and not at all rushed. Well done to all involved!

This was a Birthday gift from my daughters and families.
Very enjoyable.

The coach pick up was on time, with very pleasant Coach Drivers and Newmarket Tour Guide.
A sunny Sunday afternoon enabled the coach party, to roam Canterbury at its best.
The overnight Hotel being close to the dockyard, gave us maximum time to wander around Chatham, which included a set timed Call the Midwife tour. Our guide, dressed in a Midwife's uniform, took us around explaining where different episodes were shot, and showing us photos of the same area from the series.
Due to a road accident on our route home, our coach drivers and tour guide anticipating a long delay, took us on an alternative route. Therefore, not only avoiding further delay, they kept us informed of the setting down times, so that we could all inform our transport home.

Very good for what we paid. Only one comment about the tour Manager is that when she gave us a time to leave different places it was anoying that she did keep changing her mind, people were back on time but they did feel that you were late.
