Attraction details
Owner description: This 19th century fort includes a museum highlighting Weymouh's role in Britain's naval history. Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour, Nothe Fort is one of the best preserved forts of its kind. The advances in technology that affected the fort are explained through many displays, exhibits and audio visual facilities located on the ramparts, gun decks and maze of underground passageways. Enjoy the stunning and far reaching views of the Jurassic Coast from the picnic areas on the Ramparts. These will provide one of the best vantage points on the south coast.

“Interesting and informative place to visit !”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great place to visit and learn more about Weymouyhs' maritime history ! Loads of interestin information available and great views of the bay from the fort ! Could be a problem for certain disabilities as there are some steps and narrow passages to navigate ....but still plenty to see if you cannot get to the more awkward places in the fort !
