There is relatively little in the UK in the way of fully-accessible post-medieval fortications in the UK; Nothe Fort is the outstanding example. Beautifully restored, interesting displays, lots to explore, knowledgeable and friendly staff, decent cafe and terrific views from the top levels. On the minus side, the guide book is not very good and includes no plans.

We had decided to visit Nothe Fort before reading some of the less favourable reviews of it on here. Nevertheless we stuck with our plan to visit and were pleasantly surprised. The fort itself is not particularly big but we managed to spend around 3 hours there. My other half is more into history than I am, but we both... More

On our visit we were surprised to find that there was so much to see, with its labyrinth of underground passageways that take some time to walk through them all. It also has a very pleasant Restaurant.

The Fort is an amazing place to look out over Weymouth and all round the coast. There is a lot of history at the fort, but there isn't too much reading to do as you around. You can go down in the underground passageways, some of which are supposed to be haunted. We were also lucky enough to see some... More

Lovely scenery at the Nothe, great for a leisurely dog walk and picnics in the summer ! There are usually things going on inside the Nothe throughout the year too !

I was pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of the displays at the fort. The spaces have been used very effectively to tell not only the story of the fort but also the environment and experiences of troops and the population in the southern coastal areas of the country at times of war. Before going in I was not... More

We had a really enjoyable visit. Staff were very friendly and it's extremely good value. Stunning views and very interesting and one of the few places where dogs are welcome - our Buster loved it too! The cafe serves up delicious homemade pasties, sandwiches and cake, if you didn't want to picnic. An all round lovely surprise :-)
