Didn't plan to go here, a walk took us there and we decided to go in. Tour was actually really really interesting, easy to follow and lots of salvaged historical items to see. Plus fantastic views at the top. 100% recommend!

A place that can be overlooked, and not necessarily easy to get to, Nothe Fort has spectacular views across to Portland, and Weymouth and the Nothe pub en route when you need a 'pit stop' !!

Hi I am bringing eight sea cadets aged ten to twelve from Bristol to Weymouth July 16 -17th and am wondering wether to pay you a visit. AS I have not been there myself could you advise me if there is anything that would appeal to this age group within the fort as funds are very limited. Many thanks Mary.
