“Well worth visiting for all ages”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This was our second visit to the fort, this time taking our nephews aged 11 and 14. Do take their free handsets to explore the fort which dates from the Napoleonic times with use up until the 1950s, it helps with the detail and putting it all together. Amazing history of the fort, you are free to explore the inner and outer walls and definitely listen to the handset for the ammunitions store. Do take a picnic which you can eat in the grounds. Parking is free beside the fort. A great day out, suitable for all ahead, allow 2-3 hours to do justice to a remarkable part of our heritage.

“Great value”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I caught the ferry from Harwich to Felixstowe Port yesterday -4pound each way-and had a cuppa at cafe before walking the short distance to Landguard Fort. 3 pound for seniors and 4 for adults and no extra for audio. My friends and I spent more than 2hours wandering around listening to audio which as really interesting. There is a small shop in fort. We went back to cafe and spent the next hour relaxing with lunch and watching the container ships loading and unloading and then back on ferry. A good day for vey little money

“An interesting find”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Went here with the husband and 4 kids, ages 12, 11, 6 and 3. Not much to look at from the outside but was excellent fun inside! The kids loved exploring all the tunnels and strange little spaces, and learned a few new things too. Lots of areas for adults to sit. Entry price was very appealing too and you get a free audio tour. Also a little gift shops for drinks, snacks and souvenirs. Was a fun way to spend a morning.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the visit here. From the outside it looks grey, dull and uninteresting and only went in as my husband was keen to. We were given an audio guide and I must say I really did enjoy going round. The audio was informative but concise so held my interest. I would certainly recommended all ages to visit, should have gone in before now!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

35 mile trip to see this attraction which we thoroughly enjoyed. Interesting and informative to see what happened historically, especially during the war. Audio tour is essential as this makes the whole experience so more enjoyable. You can also see the cargo ships in harbour, or leaving harbour as we did and this adds to the day.
