Fort Amherst, based in Chatham, Medway, Kent, is Britain’s largest Napoleonic Fortress and provides a great day out for all the family. If you are looking for days out in Kent or the Medway area, then come and discover how Chatham dockyard would have been defended.
Visitors can also enjoy:
- Over 300 years of military history with an amazing network of underground passageways, historic buildings and gun emplacements all set in 20 acres of beautiful parkland.
- Take a tour of the incredible tunnel defences, enjoy some light refreshments in our Café or take a stroll to the highest point of the Fort and enjoy the spectacular views over the River Medway and the towns of Chatham and Rochester beyond.
- Explore one of Kent’s most haunted locations on spine chilling Ghost Tours or stay until the early hours on one of our Paranormal Investigations.
- Hire the Fort for your special private event. We have many different locations on the site; just call us to discuss your requirements.
"We had a great time at Fort Amherst - it was obvious that all of the volunteers had gone out of their way to ensure that the birthday ghost tour was a complete success. The girls were scared from the moment they set foot in the tunnels - that's when the screaming started and it didn't really stop until we got back out into the daylight! The misty atmosphere, together with the eerie stories, really set the scene and kept everybody completely engrossed (and, in some cases, petrified!) throughout."
"I would just like to thank you for a brilliant night. The ghost evening was a fantastic insight into the world of Fort Amherst, which my family and I really enjoyed. The guides were friendly, knowledgable and just as scepticle as the rest of us. I felt completely safe in their hands for the night, thank you."
