Popped into the cafe, was met by a very unwelcoming agreesive woman. Made me feel very unwelcome. Had planned to buy some food there but her rude manner made me feel uncomfortable so left buying only a drink.
I booked tickets online in advance. We then turned up on the relevant day. The car park was open, the cafe was closed and there was no tour guide, or indeed anyone else. We waited, but eventually went home. I contacted the manager to complain...More

Awarding the Fort Amherst Halloween team a gold medal for sheer raw enthusiasm, immense energy, imaginative presentation and the best Halloween experience available in Kent. A 'Must Go To' experience for all age groups for the total fun and happy excitement involved. Brilliant.

Rochester castle wedding photos? (2 Replies)
Hello, I am having a wedding reception at Fort Amherst on June 5. Before hand we are having some photos taken at Chatham Dockyards and Rochester Castle. I am wondering about the Castle .... do we need to pre-book this, or do we just pay our admission and just go where we want? Any advice would be appreicated!

Hi, You can go into the grounds at Rochester Castle for free but if you want to go inside the castle itself you have to pay.
