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.



We're not sure yet, but it's looking like it'll be in 2011 due to weather conditions.


Kent. Somewhere. We'll get a bus or something.


The Project Redsand trust have recently started giving tours.

It'll cost about £37 per person for the boat trip out to the forts. Yes, you get to go on them too.
