Become an Eastbourne Ghost Buster at the Redoubt this Halloween
Eastbourne's Redoubt Fortress Twilight Tours: Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October 2019
With the autumnal chill in the air and the leaves already falling from the trees, it's time to turn our attention to what's going on in the Eastbourne area this Halloween. So, if you're looking for a way to get you in the mood for Halloween, why not take a torchlit guided tour of the Redoubt Fortress? Tales of gruesome battles, clanking chains and ghostly manifestations are guaranteed to send shivers down your spine!
Tickets for the Redoubt's ghoulish Halloween entertainment usually sell out pretty fast, so we suggest booking your 2019 tickets quickly!
The Fort will open for only 3 consecutive nights this year for the tour (suitable for ages 13 and over) and you might just witness some ghoulish goings-on first hand. The fort is around 200 years old and is well known in the ghost hunting community for its stories of a crouching man seen on the gun platform and a mysterious lady clothed in a long white gown.
There have also been reports of shimmering apparitions passing through solid stone walls, ghostly voices and icy chills felt by paranormal investigators, who regularly visit the Fortress to conduct their investigations.
Here's a video of four of their 'ghost cams' from 2016 so you have an idea of what to expect at this spooky venue this year.
The Redoubt was originally used as a Napoleonic encampment and then as the headquarters for the Military Police during World War One.It also played a vital role in World War Two, when it was used by Canadian troops shortly before the D-Day landings.
