I took my 18-year-old daughter here and she was surprised at how much there is to see. The introduction film covers the fort's history in a light-hearted manner, making it interesting and memorable. From here you work you way around the varied exhibits inside the casemates, and there really is a lot to see - from a model of the fort to divers finds to a mock WW2 air-raid shelter experience. A walk around the ramparts provides great views of not only the fort from various angles but also across the sea, Newhaven harbour and surrounding countryside. Great for photos. There is a café, shop and kids play area. The only down side is that there are a lot of steep slopes and steep steps down to the estuary making access difficult for the less mobile.
