“Great, but should be open more often”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I've been meaning to go here for years, but it's not open very often and my visits to the area never coincided with the opening until this year. It's a great interesting place, similar in style to Fort Nelson, but different enough to justify the trip into Gosport. Look out especially for any events that might be happening to make best use of your time. Not too far from the Explosion Museum so worth the effort.

“An ok attraction seems its free”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This fort is absolutely amazing in size and much bigger than it appears from outside and has lots of open space. It was interesting to look around, it is now a holding store for English Heritage items, it had some nice displays but just felt that it could have been done in a little more in detail. If you are interested in visiting - check the English Heritage website for their opening hours. Overall it was an enjoyable hour wandering around and glad we visited.

“Well done English Heritage”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

I have been a member of EH for a few years now and visited this place on a members special guided tour day. I had no idea these places existed, so it was very interesting finding out why these things were built as they form part of our history as does Hadrians Wall. The guide, who was a volunteer was very knowledgeable and generated a lot of interest from the group. Well done EH for maintaining these odd places as they are part of our history and would just disappear if not looked after.

“not often open”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

I loved it! It was a lovely day and my son in law collected me along with the granddaughter, lovely big open space to play and scramble around in. Lots to see and helpful volunteers, It is not open that often and you need to make sure of the dates, it is well worth the effort

“Palmerston's Legacy preserved.”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

Of the many forts built during the period when war with France seemed inevitable. Lord Palmerston's timely foresight in ordering their contruction is evidenced in the well preserved completeness of Fort Brockhurst which is also easily accessible. It is a pity that so many others in this part of the south have been allowed to decay by successive disinterested local authorities.
