Due to popular demand Dr Terror is back!

Join the mad Victorian collector on a journey into the unknown in the dark tunnels and chambers beneath the Fort. Who knows what lies in wait on this spine-chilling tour.

Dr Terror’s gothic horror adventure takes you on a guided tour through the tunnels. As the number of places on each tour is restricted, advance booking is highly recommended. Any unsold tickets will be sold on the day of performance on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets are available now and can be purchased in person from Fort Nelson or via our hotline on 01329 848500. Tours last approx 40 minutes and depart throughout the day, from 10.45am until 4pm daily.

In addition to the horror tours, there will also be free Halloween craft activities from 11am to 3pm and our normal daily big gun firings at noon and 3pm.

Note to parents re age suitability: Whilst the event is horror-based, it has been designed for an audience of children. As perceptions of ‘scariness’ are very subjective, it is not possible to categorise the event as only suitable for certain age groups. In 2009, this event was thoroughly enjoyed by children as young as three, whilst some parents refused to even enter the tunnels when they heard the spooky sound effects from inside!


Adults: £5
Children: £2.50
Family (2+2): £12
