This is a very interesting place to visit, lovely views. Staff very friendly and helpful. The children really love looking for the mice and the café is very well priced.

Not really my cup of tea. I was visiting Weymouth recently on a warm sunny day, and decided to visit the fort. I spent about an hour during my visit. The views are stunning, even with the mist. This would make a great school visit for children to learn history. I would have appreciated either an audio tour or better... More

Second time round for us last visit was in 2006, even then they had a great time even though both boys were under 8, now at 12 and 15 they loved it, even enjoying the mouse hunt again. this was a must for all of us and they have even said they would love to go again

We came across this walk and attraction by accident, we didn't have time to go into the fort but had a peek. Its a lovely walk along the see there and the views are stunning. Lovely and clean and lots of notice boards to explain the area and the flora about. Will go back.

The website and leaflets for Nothe Fort hadn't really inspired us, but on the last day of our break we went anyway. We visited with our boys aged 5 & 8. It was great! Spent several hours there looking at some really interesting displays and trying to find the hidden mice. The only downside was that the underground bit scared... More

We had often walked round the harbour and thought of going to explore the fort. Glad we finally did it! The fort was fascinating and great fun for kids, trying to seek out all the hidden mice figures. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We gift aided our entrance fee and in return can return as many times as... More
