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.

A wonderful time seeing the moonlight swing band at the forte. We took a picnic and had a lovely time listening to the band. As always staff very friendly and helpful. A great time listening to a great band on a summers evening.

I have live worked and visited Weymouth over 45 years but NEVER knew about this Gem, Weymouth Council don't have much to offer with they reduced ingenuity but this is a credit. Well done

We spent nearly three hours here and I am sure some people spend considerably longer if they have an interest in war memorabilia The grounds outside are beautiful with a sea walk A quick snack in the restaurant was also very good

Hi I am bringing eight sea cadets aged ten to twelve from Bristol to Weymouth July 16 -17th and am wondering wether to pay you a visit. AS I have not been there myself could you advise me if there is anything that would appeal to this age group within the fort as funds are very limited. Many thanks Mary.
