This is one of the most interesting places I have visited for a while and on a cold wet February day it was a good idea. Its a lot bigger than I thought it would be and there is so much to learn about the history of Weymouth.

Went for a Victorian fare and had a good look around. Children and elderly parents really enjoyed our visit, so a good day out for all

We have been to Nothe Fort many times and always find something new. It is a very interesting place and shows how much Weymouth was used during the second world war, and also goes further back. there are plenty of rooms and corridors to walk through and they even have a lift for the disabled so they can get up...

This is a great place to learn about the history of Weymouth, explore the fort and accommodation used by the men living there and seeing the weapons used. Lots for everyone of all ages to do.

Have been here with visitors several times. Both educational and entertaining. If you go on theme days there is more for the kids to see and do. In the summer outdoor concerts are well supported and usually finish with a firework display.

Been to weymouth many times but never been here before. Great history, however if you are scared of models then the ones around here are freaky.

If never been before great place to go and visit, plenty to see and lots of knowledge about surrounding area.

A very historic location with scenic views. We visited here with some friends and found it to be very interesting. You can have a nice walk around the fort, go into the tunnels and learn a bit about weymouths history. We didn't have kids with us, but it would be a great place for the kids to run about.
