You wouldn't believe what you can hide under a grassy hill. Fascinating; well worth a visit, so don't wait for a rain day

A super activity for the family - our ages were 5 to 65. Both educational and fun. You also get some super views across the bay. Wear flat comfy shoes.

We were surprised at how good the day at Nothe Fort was. It kept our family, inc 2 young children, entertained for a whole day. Lovely views and cafe too.

We stumbled upon this area whilst out walking and found the views of Weymouth Bay and Portland to be very impressive. The squirrels are very tame to the point that one climbed up my wife's leg!!

Having not visited Nothe Fort for a few years was greatly impressed with the new displays that have been added.. Views from the top of Fort are amazing, being able to see all of Weymouth Bay and Portland on a clear day. There are plenty of things to see for all ages what ever the weather. Well done to all...
