Stars of Call the Midwife took to The Dockyard to launch the official tours at the location which turns 400 this year

The Official Call the Midwife locations tours have been delivered at The Historic Dockyard Chatham by none 
other than some of the cast itself.

Familiar faces from the much-loved BBC period drama favourite took to The Dockyard for the launch of the official tours and shared their love of filming at the location that’s turning 400 this year.

“The Historic Dockyard Chatham has been our home for many years and I’m delighted to be sharing it with all the wonderful Call the Midwife fans in celebration of its 400th birthday,” said executive producer Dame Pippa Harris.

Capturing the hearts of more than 10 million TV viewers who, for seven series have tuned in each week to watch the Sunday evening favourite and the comings and goings at Nonnatus House, many of the show’s iconic scenes feature The Historic Dockyard Chatham as a backdrop.

This year in partnership with the creators and producers of Call the Midwife, Neal Street Productions, the officials tours take you around the sites such as where Chummy learnt to ride a bike, and the ship which Sister Evangelina and Trixie had to climb aboard to help the Captain’s Daughter give birth.

They also feature material from the latest series as well as props and costumes used in the series, replica sets – and your very own costumed midwife guide.

Actors Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Stephen McGann (Dr Patrick Turner), Laura Main (Shelagh Turner), Victoria Yeates (Sister Winifred), Cliff Parisi (Fred Buckle) and Annabelle Apsion (Violet Buckle) were there to celebrate the launch and spoke fondly of The Dockyard and filming there.

“I love it down here, there’s real ships and railways, and real people walking around! It is lovely to be among real moving, working history,” said Cliff Parisi, who plays a handyman and gardener.

Tours are running until October 2018 and are bound to sell out fast. Tickets can be bought here!
