Now in our 41st year of scaring!

Fort Amherst Halloween Horrors has long been known for being a fairly extreme Halloween attraction. Doing things that no other scare attraction will do. Over the years we have produced almost everything scary you can think of.

We started in 1983, making us the first scare attraction in the UK.

Halloween Horrors was started by a handful of volunteers at Fort Amherst raising money for charity to keep the historic English Heritage site open and to this day it is still run by volunteers raising money for charity. We now have around 200 volunteers all dedicated to scaring you.
Scar Award Winner 2015
In 2015 we won an award from ScareTOUR for Outstanding Achievement in Scare Entertainment, so come and help us celebrate our 41st year (which no other scare attraction has done in the UK) and have some fun uncovering the truth of the spirits of Fort Amherst.


In 2020, due to the government restrictions, we were forced to cancel our Halloween event for the first time in 37 years. As the majority of the volunteers had already created costumes and rehearsed their parts, we decided to write a script adapted from the original plot from the 2020 event and turned it into a short film.
