Went along, not expecting much but was surprised by the amount of content. You can climb the walls for excellent views of the surrounding areas and see the guns. Nearly everything else is underground but really well presented. So much to see. Lots of information on how and why the fort was built. Models show you its function during different... More

Lots to see and do. There are allot of exhibitions underground, and you can access most of the fort, which is good, as other forts tend to have closed areas. Cafe on site did an excellent soup at less than £4, and with gluten free options Well worth exploring for a few hours

A brilliant, informative day. Give yourself plenty of time as there's heaps to see! Nice food hall to break up the day. Kids are easily kept occupied although there are plenty of steps so you will need to keep your eye on them at all times. Can't say anymore than "Absolutely Fantastic".

When we visited it was actually closed, as we were out of season. However a definite must for a walk around, as the views from up the top are breathing. The stone pier is worth a stroll along as it gives you a different view point, and right at the end they have put an additional tower for you to... More

Went here for the afternoon with a friend, it's dog friendly so took the dog along too. It's an excellent place to visit in Weymouth and would highly recommend it.

Really interesting place to visit and very often have special events on, I've been here several times with Jnr (now 9) and he loves it. Lots to see, very educational and fun to. If they do it, go see the WWII Experience where the volunteers will take you back in time. Oh yes the place is run by volunteers and... More
