“Go on, try It! - You'll love it!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

This must rank as one of the best value-for-money visitor attractions in the UK, let alone in Suffolk! The work that the volunteers have done to restore the facilities is hugely commendable.

From the outside, the Fort looks very un-interesting, but get inside, and informed by the audio guide you will be amazed to hear how important it was in days gone by - since the time of Henry VIII.

Well worth a visit!

“Amazing afternoon”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We visited Landguard Fort whilst on holiday and had a truly fantastic time. It took at least 2 hours to see everything and the volunteers have worked hard to make the fort what it is. Well worth the money. Steve P.

“A 'Must See' Monument”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

This is a highly recommended location for anyone interested in military history. The audio tour is comprehensive, providing a plethora of interesting information. The staff were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble, and they are clearly passionate about the Fort, its restoration and continued viability.

Please go and visit the Fort and lobby English Heritage to provide the funding to continue the Trustees' essential work.
