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.
Usual opening times are Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm with last admission at 3.15pm. Also open on bank holiday Mondays. Please check the Upnor Castle webpage for the latest details.
