The history of the castle dates back to the Norman Conquest when one of the Norman nobles, Richard Fitz Herbert, was given land at a crossing of the river Medway. A typical motte and bailey wooden castle was built, but this was destroyed some years later during a rebellion. It was rebuilt in stone and the twin-towered gatehouse was added in the 13th century. The gatehouse still stands and is considered among the finest in England. The castle had a succession of owners but the Civil War saw an end to its existence and parts of it were gradually demolished and used for buildings elsewhere.
The grounds are free of charge and are open daily 8am to dusk. There is an admission fee for the castle which is open 9am to 5pm Mondays to Saturdays, and 10.30am to 5pm Sundays. There is an audio tour which lasts about one hour and is also available in French, German, Dutch and Spanish. The tour offers interactive displays and tableaux recreating medieval life.
Chatham Historic Dockyard
Chatham Dockyard built ships from the 16th to the 20th century, the last one launched in 1966. Many of these were Royal Navy warships, including HMS Victory. This maritime heritage and many of the original buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries have now been preserved as a visitor and educational attraction. Covering 80 acres, the Dockyard has land-based displays such as the Wooden Walls, describing the 18th century navy, and the Ropery, and also three different types of ship to visit: a Victorian sloop, a World War 2 destroyer and a 1960s submarine. There is also a lifeboat display.
The site has a shop, café and car park. It is open daily from February to October; hours vary, details are on the website. Land displays are accessible for the disabled, but visits to the ships are difficult. Virtual tours are available as an alternative.

Secret Nuclear Bunker
Hidden behind the doors of an unpretentious bungalow lies what was once one of Britain's best kept secrets. Built in 1952 with 40.000 tons of concrete, 100 feet below, lies the bunker that was built with the purpose to give shelter to a devolved central government and military commanders if the UK would have been attacked and nuclear war broken out.
The bunker consists of a maze of rooms that offered enough space to house 600 people, with own water supply and electricity generators. There is also a civilian operations room for Ministers or even the Prime Minister to organise survival measures following a nuclear attack, a scientists' centre, military operations command centre to organize retaliation, canteen, 5 dormitories, a sick bay and a BBC Studio.
Visitors can take an audio tour through the bunker which was built under such secrecy that not even its neighbours knew about its existence.
There are free parking facilities, a gift shop, refreshments and toilets.
Please note that due to its design and purpose of the bunker there are no lifts and the three storeys are only accessible via stairs. It is recommended to wear flat shoes.
Opening times :
Summer Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm (last entry)
Weekend and holidays 10am to 5 pm (last entry)
