We aim to offer Tunnel Tours every day, however as these are run by volunteers on occasion they may not be available. To avoid disappointment we advise that you book in advance.
We estimate that the Tunnel Tours last approximately 80 minutes. To visit the entire Fort should take you approximately 2 hours.
Sadly not, we need to ensure you are safe so you must be accompanied by a tour guide.
We welcome visitors of all ages, however as an ancient scheduled monument we are restricted to the adjustments that we can make. The Tunnel Tours are currently unavailable for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility due to the uneven floors and steep steps.
The Tunnels are uneven with steep steps at point and therefore are not suitable for buggies. The tunnels can also be quite scary for smaller children and history may not be their thing, so we recommend that children be over the age of 5.
We do have other activities on site such as trails which may be more suitable for smaller children.
Our grounds are free to visit throughout the year, however you will need to pay for parking. On occasion areas of the Fort may be closed for events.
Sadly not at the moment, however we hope to secure funding for one in the near future.
We welcome dogs on leads in all of our external areas and cafe. We do not currently allow dogs within our historic buildings, such as the Tunnels.
4 hours free parking is included in your Tunnel Tour ticket price, you MUST enter your vehicle registrations in the machine in the Pantry.
If you visit for longer than 4 hours you will need to pay £1 per hour.
Visitors to the Pantry Cafe receive two hours complimentary parking, you MUST enter your vehicle registration in the machine in the Pantry.
Disabled visitors should pay the standard admission price, we do offer a carer free of charge (carer will need to show a form of ID upon arrival)
Please note that due to uneven floors and steep steps within the tunnel complex, the Tunnel Tour is unsuitable for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.
Sure! Picnic to your heart's content. Please note that we do not have storage facilities.
BBQs are strictly prohibited unless pre-agreed by management.
Please check our events calendar for weekends that we have re-enactors on site.
