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.



Tom Scott is planning a trip for Sunday June 19th.


From Queenborough, 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.


The Project Redsand trust have recently started giving tours.

The boat trip will cost approximately £75 per head, including boarding the forts. £38 of that needs to be paid immediately, in order that the boat can be booked.

Everyone who was on the list by 9pm on 16th May got an email asking if they want one of the remaining places. Feel free to continue to add your email below the line, but it won't help you with this current trip!

If enough people sign up we'll organise another trip. Which is highly likely, given the amount of interest.
