Discover film location sites from the award-winning TV adaptation of Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth.

Get a sneak peak behind the scenes as you hear fascinating anecdotes about the filming of the show. Designed to represent the impoverished East End of London in the 1950s and 60s, the dockyards also have a fascinating history of their own. Walk along streets that were used to represent the slums of Poplar Dock, and walk in the footsteps of some of Miranda Hart and Jenny Agutter's most memorable scenes.

The tour was really good and informative, our “midwife” Irene was very knowledgeable and explained about the filming, various scenes and events along the way so that fans of the programme could relate to it. The exhibition was good but a bit small and the gifts were also disappointing. We had a lovely sunny day so it made it easier to walk around and enjoy some other areas of the site. I would recommend it to CTM fans as they will relate to it as I did.

If you love the TV show you will really enjoy this tour. I went with my mum who's in a wheelchair and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide Laura was excellent. She really gave good background to the show and painted the scene for us. You would just see an old building but once she has explained what it was used as in the show, and she had a good book which showed the actual scene, you can just picture it. There's also a gallery especially for this tour. I would definitely recommend it.

Terrific experience.

Great tour, our tour guide Therese was really informative about the location and some of the tricks used in filming. The building of Nonnatus House is not on the site but some areas have been set up like the film set and there was lots more to explore. The location is great, nice cafe and souvenirs available. I was on holiday from Australia and found public transport from London easy... train to North Greenwich then a bus from that station. So glad I took the tour.
