Fort Amherst Heritage Trust

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 along with over 300 years of military history, 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.

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.
