    An unparalleled setting

    With the horizon as your backdrop, Spitbank Fort offers a stunningly unusual venue from which to take your vows. With just a passing yacht to interrupt the view, your wedding photographs will boast panoramic views of the Solent and beyond.

    Offering exclusivity and privacy, you can be sure that your day is yours and yours alone to share with your closest friends and family. Enjoy a Champagne reception up on deck as the sun sets, stargaze from the rooftop hot pool and celebrate into the small hours - there are no neighbours to complain around here.

    Taking your vows

    The Crow’s Nest is licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies for up to 60 guests. A contemporary styled room, the stunning location is ever present thanks for floor to ceiling windows that allow unrestricted views across the Solent. This stunning vantage point near the top of the fort also benefits from a terrace.

    The Victory Bar is licensed for up to 40 guests and is a warm, welcoming space showcasing the traditional Victorian architecture of the fort with sloping walls and exposed brickwork. The Laurent Perrier Champagne bar located here means your guests can enjoy some celebratory fizz while they wait.

    The Officer’s Mess is also licensed for up to 40 guests and is a perfect blend of old and new with its modern furnishings complementing the historic, arched ceilings. For a ceremony or wedding breakfast, this is a setting full of charm and character.

Each boasts a glorious ensuite bathroom and large, ultra comfortable beds. With exposed brickwork and iron ceilings, the rooms are packed with character. Ambient lighting, plush furnishings and period furniture as well as a unique sea view remind you that you really are experiencing another level of luxury.

Dear Guests

As a result of recent Government guidance discouraging mass gatherings and encouraging ‘social distancing’ in order 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. We are currently concentrating on the displacement of all confirmed bookings which were due to take place over the next 28 days (up to and including Friday 17th April). Bookings beyond this date may also be subject to rebooking. We will be looking at dates beyond 17th April on a fortnightly basis whilst taking into account any further government advice.

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 we respectfully request that you do not contact the Port Office by phone or in person as this will help our team to process all enquiries as soon as possible. Please channel any other enquiries through our hello@solentforts.com email address.

We are working hard to reschedule as many of the affected bookings as smoothly and efficiently as we can and we are doing everything we can to provide maximum flexibility as the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve.

These procedures apply for all bookings made direct with the venue. If you booked through a third party agency please contact them directly.

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
