Here you have the location of a fabulous day out for the whole family. Educational and fun, Upnor Castle is set in tranquil grounds adjoining a riverside village. This rare example of an Elizabethan artillery fort was built in 1559 and redeveloped in 1599-1601 to protect warships moored at Chatham dockyards. Despite a brave attempt, it entirely failed to do so in 1667, when the Dutch sailed past it to burn or capture the English fleet at anchor.
