Located at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour, Nothe Fort is a labyrinth of underground passageways and outdoor areas with stunning views of the Jurassic Coast. Constructed on three levels (which are now 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. Nothe Fort is now one of Weymouth’s major attractions and a venue for a wide range of events.
You don’t have to be a military enthusiast to enjoy Nothe Fort, it’s a great day out for all the family with lots to see and explore, so why not come and spend a day with us!
Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour, Nothe Fort is one of the best preserved forts of its kind in the UK. The authentic and fascinating history of the fort is brought to life in the Museum and Visitor Centre with a military history collection, interactive displays and exciting exhibits.
Ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night are scaring up a host of new visitors to our historic and atmospheric attractions. Thrill-seekers and paranormal activity enthusiasts are coming to the Fort for a very unique experience. The site has always had a legendary ghostly whistling gunner and many people claim to have heard this in the passageways.
