Your experience will extend further than your taste buds. In addition to your quintessential Afternoon Tea you can also discover our Napoleonic Fort during a historical fort tour, we’ll transport you to and from the forts by boat across the Solent and with a full afternoon on board you’re free to explore our facilities at leisure.

Afternoon Teas are served on selected days from 2pm – 4:30pm. Your boat transfer departs the Solent Forts Port Office at Gunwharf Quays at 12pm and returns to Gunwharf Quays around 5pm. Travel time from Gunwharf Quays to Spitbank Fort is approximately 15 minutes.

Whatever the occasion, a long overdue ‘catch-up’, a celebratory outing or even a romantic date, your Afternoon Tea on board will truly be an experience like no other.

Dear Guests

As a result of recent Government guidance to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily cease trading at Solent Forts. The safety of our guests and crew is and always has been of paramount importance.

As this situation is unprecedented, we are, as yet, unsure when it will be safe to reopen the forts. as much as we would like to open them sooner, there is a small chance of late Summer 2020 depending on Coronavirus regulations however it may not be before Spring 2021.

You will appreciate the unprecedented nature of the current situation and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving at this time. We as we are a very small team and will process all enquiries as soon as possible. Please channel all enquiries through our hello@solentforts.com email address.

Please be advised

We will NOT be taking any new bookings or sell any more vouchers during the current Coronavirus crisis.

Guests with existing bookings are advised that their deposit will be held pending a rebooking when the forts reopen – they do not have to commit to a date at this time, their credit will remain valid with us.

If you booked through a third party agency please contact them directly.

Despite government changes to restrictions (July4th) it is still not possible to operate the Forts due to their unique requirements in both transportation and sanitisation requirements. Further updates will be provided via our online statement and through our social media channels.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Solent Forts Team
