Ages: 9+

Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

There will be no tunnel tours from Monday 25th September 2017 until Sunday 19th November 2017 due to our Halloween Horrors events.

At Fort Amherst, accompanied by your guide, with a lantern, you will hear tales of the mysterious and sinister happenings at the Fort.

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.

They're becoming known for their excellent ghost tours, which are too spooky for young ones but they also offer a Junior version, plus an educational tour.

The tunnels are regrettably unsuitable for wheel chairs, push chairs and those of limited mobility.
