This 19th century fort includes a museum highlighting Weymouh's role in Britain's naval history. Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour, Nothe Fort is one of the best preserved forts of its kind. The advances in technology that affected the fort are explained through many displays, exhibits and audio visual facilities located on the ramparts, gun decks and maze of underground passageways. Enjoy the stunning and far reaching views of the Jurassic Coast from the picnic areas on the Ramparts. These will provide one of the best vantage points on the south coast.

We spent nearly three hours here and I am sure some people spend considerably longer if they have an interest in war memorabilia The grounds outside are beautiful with a sea walk A quick snack in the restaurant was also very good

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.
