A nice walk but when we got there it was closed so we couldn't go in. We followed the cafe signs thinking we could warm up,but this was closed as well.

I really enjoy going to the nothe fort. It has a lot of interesting exhibits to look at. The gift shop and cafe serve nice food and its full of history from early weymouth through to ww2. The mice trail for young children is quite popular and they get a certificate at the end of the museum .

This is a place for people who like history and excitement. There is food available to purchase in the cafe and a great gift shop. I loved the ghosts tunnel and had the best views over Portland and Weymouth!!!

This is quite simply one of the best attractions in terms of value for money on the south coast. If it's dry you can stroll on high round the ramparts with spectacular views of Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour.
