Description

Award winning visitor attraction offering low cost entry and great value come rain or shine.
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
Located at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour the Fort is a labyrinth of underground passageways and outdoor areas with stunning views of the Jurassic Coast. Constructed on three levels , which are easily accessed by means of a lift, the Fort is filled with displays, mammoth guns and cinema areas that chart the history of this large and magnificent Victorian structure which took 12 years to build. The Fort is now one of Weymouth’s major attractions and a venue for a wide range of events.
Nothe Fort has to compete in a competitive market place to attract visitors and much needed income to this site. We have a big responsibility, not just to preserve this monument for future generations, but to enhance the visitor experience and educational learning to the local community. We are working with partners to increase awareness of where we are (often hidden from the main concentration of tourists on the esplanade in Weymouth) and more importantly what we have to offer. We believe we offer value for money and how many other attractions in Dorset admit children for only £2?
