Here at Yours, we're huge fans of Call the Midwife, and if you're missing the series as much as we are, you'll no doubt love the opportunity to visit the real set where the show is filmed.
If this sounds right up your street, or like you might want to treat a special fan of Call the Midwife to a fun day out, read on to find out where the tour takes place, how to book your trip and what you can expect from the tour.
Where is the tour?
The tour is located at The Historic Dockyard Chatham. The Dockyard holds a lot of history and it was once the site where mighty ships that mastered the world’s oceans were built.
What's included in the tour?
On the tour you'll get to walk in the footsteps of Nurse Trixie Franklin, Sister Julienne and Dr Turner and more. We also love that the walking tour is even led by your very own costumed midwife.
Along the tour you’ll recognise the iconic cobbled streets and buildings of ‘Poplar’ plus famous locations. With so many series gone by, you'll also get a picture book to help jog your Call the Midwife memory. At the end of the tour, you'll get to see the props and costumes.
The whole tour lasts for 90 minutes and it's a walking tour with some uneven, cobbled surfaces, so make sure you wear comfortable footwear on the day. It is wheelchair friendly, so disabled guests will also be able to enjoy the tours.
Within your ticket, you'll also get access to the Dockyard site on the date of your ticket so you can make a real day of it.
After the tour, don't forget to pop into the Ropery Shop to see all the Call the Midwife merchandise. There's plenty to browse, from branded tea and jam’s to fridge magnets and mugs.
Where to eat
When booking, you can add and extra treat onto your booking in the form of a cream tea. You'll get a fruit scone, strawberry jam, clotted cream, chocolate dipped strawberry, pot of tea/coffee (including Italian coffees)/hot chocolate) with an optional small bottle of Prosecco.
The cream teas are served in the Mess Deck restaurant, and you can enjoy this after you've been on your tour. Cream teas cost an extra £6.25 (£13.15 for the Prosecco) each on top of your ticket price.
