FORT AMHERST IS ONE OF KENT’S MOST ACTIVE PARANORMAL LOCATIONS

For over 300 years, thousands of feet have walked Fort Amherst’s grounds, and thousands of lives have been connected to its deep ditches and protective walls. Birth, death and the dread of war; love, laughter and health; illness, fear and sorrow: all have left their imprint through the ages.

If you want to discover more about those souls for whom Fort Amherst was once home, or hear about strange or unexplained events, book one of our Spooky Fort events today.

(All tours and investigations may vary due to weather conditions, or for reasons of safety.)
