Join us aboard Spitbank Fort on the 5th June for an all day D-Day ‘Forget-me-not’ Fort Experience. As part of the 75th D-Day landing anniversary, you will receive a best of British afternoon tea, fine dining in the evening and have the best views on the Solent to watch the RAF and Red Arrows flypasts.
Your experience starts at the Solent Fort Port Office where you can check-in from 10.30am. Then it’s a boat transfer to the Fort, which is included in the package. The boat departs Gunwharf Quays at 11am and returns to Gunwharf Quays at approximately 11.15pm. Travel time between Gunwharf Quays and Spitbank Fort is approximately 30 minutes.
Before sitting down for your best of Britain afternoon tea, you will have the opportunity to join our guided Fort tour; be amazed by its sheer breadth, the scale of each bedroom suite and the varied history the Fort has to offer. If you have never visited the Fort, our Forget Me Not D-Day Fort Experience could the perfect occasion to make that long awaited visit.
Your four course dinner, expertly prepared by our chefs will be served in the Fort’s “Officer Mess”; a room full of character and the perfect setting to sit back and relax whilst you are waited on by our Fort crew and entertained by singer Amy Baker. Our Forget-Me-Not D-Day Fort Experience menu has been especially prepared by our Executive Chef for this ‘one day’ to celebrate the best of Britain in recognition of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

With a Fire Pit on the top deck, hot chocolate and marshmallows are served from 10pm, we like to keep our guests as warm as possible before we have to say goodbye.
This really is the place to be if you’re looking to celebrate the 75th D-Day landings anniversary in style! We are expecting to see MV Boudicca and her flotilla also go past the Fort as she leaves Portsmouth on our latest voyage to Normandy with her special guests onboard: our wartime veterans.
If you’d really like to celebrate the occasion, add a glass of Champagne for an additional £10! Simply call 02392 809767 to add this onto your booking
