The makers of Call the Midwife have revealed details for an official tour of the show’s locations!
While much of the BBC’s hit period drama series is shot at the Longcross Film Studios in Surrey, many key scenes and exterior street shots are also filmed at the Historic Dockyard in Chatham, near London.
The show’s official Facebook page explained: “This is a wonderful public visitor attraction that is also used by the film industry because of its stock of authentic historic dockland industrial buildings. Perfect for a show set in the riverside Poplar district of the fifties and sixties! All those iconic cycling midwife street scenes? That’s Chatham!
“The great news about this location is that you CAN visit it. For some years, the lovely people at Chatham have shown visitors around our iconic locations – but this year we’re delighted to announce that Call the Midwife is partnering with the Historic Dockyard to present the OFFICIAL Call the Midwife location tour!”
Overseen by the show’s producers, the new tour will feature material from the latest season, as well as props, costumes, outdoor sets and even a costumed Midwife.
The tours will run from 10 March to 28 October this year. We’ll let you know as soon as tickets are available to book!
Season 6 is available to buy now on DVD.
The seventh season of Call the Midwife is currently airing on Sunday nights on BBC One and begins in the US on PBS this spring.
