Redsands.jpg

The Redsands Sea Forts are WWII relics located in the Thames Estuary. They've recently been opened up for visitors.

We want to visit them. They are awesome.

What

When

Tom Scott is tentatively planning a trip for a Sunday in June.

Where

Whitstable, in Kent, a two-hour train ride away. Carpooling may be an option, but given the delays of previous trips it may be best to go for a scheduled train.

How

The Project Redsand trust have recently started giving tours.

The boat trip will cost approximately £38 per head. If you wish to board the forts (optional, apparently) there is an additional charge of £35 per head payable to the Project Redsand Trust (a registered charity), making the total charge around £73 per head.
