Chatham Dockyard is a really good place to visit, just don't bother with the rest of Chatham its an absolute dive of a town... After your visit head to Rochester instead to finish off a good day at the Docks with some nice little pubs and the Cathedral.
Spent many a weekend on the White ship "Gannet" when I was a trainee at Daedalus, it used to be in Gosport near the Jolly Roger pub. We had to work 1 in 4 weekends chipping paint and helping the restoration effort. I believe it ran out of money and ended up at Chatham where they did the work.
