The Fort has been open for 150 years and has a long history full of tall tales and spooky stories.
It’s a great place to visit at any time of the year but around Halloween this historic Victorian fort, with its underground tunnels and secret chambers, is particularly atmospheric.
As well as a whole museum of national treasures to explore our spooky half term activities for families are sure to keep the kids out of mischief.
Join one of the spooky storytelling sessions and be enthralled by Victorian tales of mysterious disappearances, sudden deaths and ghosts from the Fort’s best-forgotten history.
