Step aboard Spitbank 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.
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.
With any free time on board, be sure to sample the delights of the roof deck before being whisked back to dry land. This immersive experience is a great day out and one truly not to be missed.
Your experience also includes boat transfers to and from the forts. The boat departs Gunwharf Quays at 12 noon and returns to Gunwharf Quays at approximately 5.00pm. Travel time between Gunwharf Quays and Spitbank Fort is approximately 15 minutes.
