"> 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 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
