Fort Amherst in Kent is Britain’s largest Napoleonic fortress and features a fascinating network of underground tunnels, beautiful parkland, which is open to the public free of charge all year round and stunning views of the river from one of Medway’s highest points.

The next big on site production is the world famous Halloween Horrors. These have been described by the experts at ScareTour as ‘Not for the faint of heart’ and as being ‘Like something straight out of a horror film!’ by What’s On magazine

Running for over 30 years it’s back and as terrifying as its ever been! The tunnels are split into different themes and decorated accordingly with actors (or are they?) lurking around every corner, in the walls and above doorways ready to scare anyone who dares to venture in. This is an absolute must if horror is your bag. It’s quite possibly the best scare attraction in the whole of the UK.

This is as real as it gets so don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Due to the overwhelming success of events suitable for younger guests the children’s and teens tours will again be available for 2017!

If being scared out of your mind isn’t up your street then take a break in the traditional on site cafe as there is so much to see and learn at the Fort. Events are held all year round, including daily educational tunnel tours, archery sessions, ghost hunts, owl flying experiences and wine/beer tastings.

This is an exciting time for the Fort as it will soon be at the centre of an archaeological exploration and heritage regeneration project following a successful bid for support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Fort Amherst
