Lunch Experience


– Includes return boat transfers
– Historical fort tour
– Three course lunch 

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.

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
