Hiring the Fort
Fort Amherst is a truly unique and spectacular location for your wedding.
Fort Amherst is the perfect location for re-enactment Groups whatever period of history you are interested in. With over 750 metres of defensive underground tunnels, a drill square, open lawned areas for battle re-enactment and space to camp overnight, it can accommodate several units simultaneously if required. Black powder can be supplied on request at an additional cost.
Fort Amherst is one of Kent’s most paranormally active locations with many groups reporting very high levels of activity both in the tunnel complex and in other areas of the Fort.
Fort Amherst is a historic Ancient Monument set within 20 acres of parkland just 40 minutes from London and 45 minutes from the Channel ports of Dover and Folkestone.

The 79th Cameron Highlanders
The 79th Cameron Highlanders are are a collection of people who are dedicated to re-enacting life as it would have been in the 79th Cameron Highlanders Regiment during the Peninsular wars and up to the battle of Waterloo. They try to recreate as authentically as possible the everyday life for the soldiers and their families within the regiment, using costume, muskets, drums and food cooked to authentic recipes and day to day routine life in the camp.
