If there’s one thing the children love it’s boats – especially old boats. We’ve been to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard a few times but have never ventured further afield so when the Historic Dockyard Chatham invited us to visit we knew it would be somewhere the children would love – and Hubby could get a history fix too! As soon as we drove into the Historic Dockyard Chatham we were excited. The…
