Things to do in and around Chatham

The Ship and Trades is ideally located with a view of St. Mary’s Island, and only a short taxi ride away from the centre of town. 

If you’re planning a family day out or shopping spree, we’re a gentle stroll from Dickens World (10 minutes), The Historic Dockyard Chatham (13 minutes), and Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre (5 minutes). 

Our dockside pub is also just a mile away from historic Rochester, with its Norman castle and awe-inspiring ancient cathedral. There’s plenty to do not only in Chatham, but in and around the wider Medway area too.

Enjoy a fantastic day or evening out in Chatham before heading back to dine and get some rest in a comfy room at our family-friendly pub and hotel - we’ll be here to welcome you!


A little further afield, but still well within driving distance, Diggerland is a fifteen minute drive away. If you’re staying with us with kids and looking for a day out, this theme park is jam-packed with activities and adventure — from trying out giant diggers to driving mini landrovers.
