This 19th century Fort includes a museum highlighting coastal defence. 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.

A must visit place, so much to see and do, a brilliant place to visit. Don’t forget to look out for the mice-not real ones! Great food in the cafe too.

Went to an open day at the Nothe Fort, am amazed in how it is a lot better, staff are brilliant, the exhibits very good, food was nice. Am going to take my niece round and show her. Well worth a day out indeed.

A visit to the Nothe provides great views across to Portland and the chalky cliffs leading to Lulworth Cove as well as views down over Weymouth beach.

Another privileged opportunity to investigate this venue with a paranormal team and I was not disappointed. Voices, footsteps, a young girl hiding in the dark from an abusive male, this place has it all. In those immortal words of Arnie "I'll be back!"

Well worth a visit if you are interested in wartime history. Good views over the sea and the estuary. One of a kind. It’s also worth walking out along the jetty to see the formidable sea wall of the fort.

Never fail to visit these gardens very well kept and tidy. Love seeing the wild life and eating a nice sticky cake looking out to sea.

Very interesting place to visit, lots of interesting world war memorabilia. Good for families from kids to grandparents. Explore the underground tunnels and see if you come across the “whistling gunner” grandparents can reminisce about times gone by, or sit out in the sunshine and...More
