“I was expecting a old fort to visit, not a leisure center”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

You can walk around this old fort that has been converted into a leisure center in about 1,5 hours. The outside gives a nice view of the city and the old fort (nothing special), but the inside is very modern. So if you are looking for a old fort to tour, this is not the place.

“Great”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Positioned high above St Hellier, seems to have everything you would expect, including theatre where some well worth act frequently appear

“Interesting but be prepared to walk”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

You definitely need the map and you can still get lost. But the walk is worth it just to understand the imaginative use of space to create a fantastic sports/entertainment venue from a disused fort. The wall plaques were very clear in explaining how the island had been defended over may years.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Although it is a sports centre, it is the old fort, and you can walk inside and around and on the ramparts, with fantastic views.

“Fort Regent”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Great venue in a great location.
Shame it's not had too much spent on it in recent years.
Could do with some more major events.
