"> Spitbank Fort Experience Packages - Your Itinerary

SOLENT FORTS 24 HOUR FORT ADVENTURE ITINERARY

The most coveted reservation

From the moment you check in at our Port Office in Gunwharf Quays, you’ll start to appreciate the uniqueness of what awaits. Leave your bags and head down to the pontoon for your boat transfer over to Spitbank Fort- one of the very few venues that require a boat to get to!

When the fort appears on the horizon, the eye-catching structure provides a wonderful photo opportunity and you’ll start to feel the excitement build. When we dock, you’ll be welcomed aboard by our crew and ushered to the Victory Bar for a welcome glass of Champagne as you make yourself at home.

Next you’ll be given a fully guided tour of this unique and fascinating fortress. From the dark and moody wine cave, to the tip of the lighthouse, you’ll learn how and why the fort was built, and what each area of the building was used for in times gone by. The fort has been lovingly restored and is full of genuine historic artefacts. Undeniably British, there is an inherent sense of patriotism throughout.

Once fully briefed it’s down to the Officer’s Mess for a buffet lunch where you can relax and soak up your spectacular surroundings and stunning views. You’re free to enjoy the fort facilities after lunch, including our roof top hot tubs offering fantastic views out over the Solent. Enjoy tea and cake in the afternoon to tie you over until your four course dinner in the Officers Mess. End the evening with a fire pit experience, toast marshmallows and enjoy a hot chocolate under the stars, before retiring to bed for the evening.

On departure day, you’ll be treated to a full fort breakfast and time to take one last picture (to delay leaving!) before being transported back to dry land.

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
