Command of the Oceans


© National Maritime Museum, London.

Command of the Oceans represents a major new project for The Historic Dockyard Chatham that will tell the story of Chatham Dockyard during the Age of Sail.

Command of the Oceans will deliver a number of exciting objectives including: 

  • A brand new visitor entrance and improved sense of arrival to The Historic Dockyard Chatham;

  • A free to enter Discovery Centre for The Dockyard and Chatham's wider world-class naval and military heritage;

  • The preservation and interpretation of a unique archaeological assemblage.

    The Command of the Oceans Project will cost 8.5m and take approximately three years to deliver.
    Despite receiving generous initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund we need your help to secure the remainder.
