Make Fort Amherst your next family day out with your Kent Pass and enjoy a 2for1 on tunnel tours!
Originally constructed during Napoleonic times in preparation for a possible invasion, Chatham’s Fort Amherst was also used as a civil defence centre in both world wars. The Fort has been in a near constant state of restoration since the 1980’s by the Fort Amherst Heritage Trust, a charity who works hard to manage and maintain the vast site.
Their goal is to sympathetically return the grounds and buildings to their original state to ensure Britain’s largest Napoleonic Fortress can be enjoyed by all. Explore with the whole family and gain a taste of history.
