‘Call the Midwife’ official locations tour is back: 2019 dates announced!

Following its huge popularity last year, the ultimate treat for Call the Midwife fans returns.

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.

An official tour of the show’s locations first opened in April 2018 and ran until last autumn.

By popular demand, the tour reopened in May and will run until 31st October.

Overseen by the show’s producers, the 90-minute tour features material from the latest season, as well as props, costumes, sets and even a costumed Midwife.

At the end of the tour, there’s a Call the Midwife shop and you can relax with a cream tea.

The original announcement said: “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!”

Tickets are priced £25 for adults and £21 for children. Your ticket also includes access to The Historic Dockyard Chatham, with its fantastic collection of historic warships and galleries.

Book your tickets here!

Gift vouchers for the tour are now also available if you want to take along a fellow fan as a present.

Call the Midwife returns this Christmas with a feature-length festive special and a ninth season recently began filming.

Season 8 is available on DVD on Amazon.
