– Includes return boat transfers
– Historical fort tour

Step aboard No Man’s Fort and discover the hidden wonder of this incredible man-made Victorian sea fortress. Built as a line of defence against enemy attacks on the Solent and Portsmouth coasts, our three forts, Spitbank Fort, No Man’s Fort and Horse Sand Fort, have a long and varied history dating back over 150 years. These forts offer an intriguing insight into a long-gone era and stand tribute to the skill and expertise required to plan and construct these incredible sea based defences.

At an impressive 35,000 sq ft, No Man’s Fort is our larger island hotel with 23 spacious bedroom suites, 7 bars and restaurants, games rooms, rooftop hot tubs, a lazer battle arena situated in the sea bunker and a glass floored lighthouse.

Your guided historical tour around the fort will give you the opportunity to discover the secrets of our incredible fortress where you’ll see the breadth and scale of the fort, appreciate the multi million pound refurbishment which has gently enhanced the forts original features and learn the significance of each and every room, from the lighthouse to the cellars.

During your visit to No Man’s Fort you will also be treated to a delicious three course lunch (menus are updated seasonally) served in our very own ‘Mess Hall’.
