Guided 1.5 hour walking tour of exterior filming locations at the historic dockyard from the hit BBC show 'Call the Midwife'. This tour is led by your very own midwife and takes you behind the scenes including an exhibition of original costumes and props from the popular show.Description
Originally based on the series of books written by Jennifer Worth, the award winning TV adaptation of 'Call the Midwife' has attracted fans worldwide since it first aired in 2012. Whilst the Nonnatus House interiors are filmed at a closed studio set in Surrey, many of the exterior scenes and other sites are filmed at Chatham Dockyard in Kent.
Watched by more than 10 million viewers and now up to its fifth series, the Historic Dockyard Chatham in Kent has been used to represent the impoverished parts of the East End of London in the 1950’s and 1960's.
As you walk around the dockyard recognize the streets and buildings used to portray the area around Poplar Dock, where many memorable scenes involving its stars have taken place.
This is a gentle paced walking tour led by your very own ‘midwife’ and guide. Your 'midwife' will share with you fascinating anecdotes about the filming of the show, behind the scenes facts, and set the scene by providing a background to Chatham Dockyard itself. The tour also includes an exhibition of costumes and props used in the show including a recreation of the Nonnatus House dining table.
A variety of other locations around The Dockyard have also appeared in the BBC One production as well as countless other movies and TV shows.
