"We had a great time at Fort Amherst - it was obvious that all of the volunteers had gone out of their way to ensure that the birthday ghost tour was a complete success. The girls were scared from the moment they set foot in the tunnels - that's when the screaming started and it didn't really stop until we got back out into the daylight!  The misty atmosphere, together with the eerie stories, really set the scene and kept everybody completely engrossed (and, in some cases, petrified!) throughout. The caterers pitched the buffet just right for a group of teenagers and there was the added bonus of being able to eat in the tunnels too. I think it's fair to say that it was an evening which everybody will remember for quite some time to come and we would certainly recommend the tour to anybody thinking of a novel, value-for-money birthday party. Thanks to you and the volunteers at Fort Amherst for making Anna's birthday a success."
