We recently visited with my six year old son and we both loved it , lots of areas to explore. The gun firing was my sons highlight and the whole day was FREE !! We had lunch in the cafe which was also very nice.

Historic Fort - well worth a visit, great view over Portsmouth and surrounding area! Situated on Portsdown Hill with easy access from the M27. Very interesting and worth a visit if your in the area.

Great site to visit for all ages. The views are amazing and lots of space for children to run around and enjoy some fresh air. Also great to just view from your car, enjoy an ice cream or cuppa from the vans. Will visit again...More
