Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Don't Miss It”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Nothe Fort is always a place to visit when going to Weymouth. Its a fort on two levels and there is so much to see and do it will take you a whole day to see it all. It shows lots of aspects of the second world war. It shows the original use of the fort and what and who used it. There is a Cafe and toilets and a gift shop. Make sure you bring your reading glasses as on the bottom level some of the writing is hard to read

“Brilliant way to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Really good venue which was exciting for adults and kids. Lots of history to learn about and interactive too with the ability to sit on the anti aircraft guns. The highlight for me was the nuclear command centre. Listening to the Public service broadcast that would have been played in the event of a nuclear attack was eerie, unsettling but also absorbing.

“surprising excellent”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

for a small place, there's lots to do.

Wonderful views, arguably as good as the sealife tower and cheaper.

A mouse hunt for the kids that keeps them interested with lots of history for us adults.

The café was exceptional, cheap and the staff were so helpful and genuine.

£15 for 2 adults, 1 child (infant got in for free) and we can visit all year for free!

The neighbouring gardens are pleasant with lots of wildlife and great views of the harbour at Weymouth and across to portland
