LOCATED at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour lies Nothe Fort, a labyrinth of underground passageways and outdoor areas with stunning views of the Jurassic Coast.
Constructed on three levels, which can be accessed via a lift, the Fort is filled with displays, mammoth guns and cinema areas that chart the history of this large and magnificent Victorian structure.
You don’t have to be a military enthusiast to enjoy the Fort – it’s a great day out for all the family with lots to see and explore. But beware: rumour has it the Fort is haunted.
There are many events taking place at the Fort this summer.
The matchstick fleet exhibition returns to the Fort from July 30-August 26. The Nothe Fort Victorian Fayre will also be running on August 23 – 24. There will also be face painting, a Victorian treasure hunt, fossil painting and much more.
The fayre will run from 10.30am-4.30pm. During summer the Fort is open daily from 10.30am-5.30pm. Admission costs £7 for adults and £1 for children (Aged 5-15 years). Under-fives go free.
