Enjoy a lantern lit tour around one of Kent’s most paranormally active locations and hear tales of strange occurrences in the 300 year history of Fort Amherst.
From the moment you enter the tunnel complex our tales begin, for there is not a single recess that has not been the scene of something un-explained. Many of these tales have been handed down through history and generations ... but all are said to be true!
Once you leave the tunnel complex the tour will take you to the upper sections of the Fort where tales of the area will be told whilst taking in the stunning views over Chatham, Rochester, Strood and the River Medway.
