Nothe Fort, Weymouth

#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Weymouth
Historic Site · Tourist Spot
Once an important stronghold in World War II, Nothe Fort remains one of the most well-preserved forts in England. Spread over three levels, the museum houses standing exhibitions of Weymouth’s naval history and of World War II. Wander to the top level and out to the surrounding gardens for views of Portland Harbor and the Jurassic Coast. Parking is available, although the fort is only a 15-minute walk from the town center. Take a rowboat from the harbor to the fort for a chance to explore the nearby beaches and enjoy views from the water.

  • Great throwback experience to WW2. Creatively curated and really gives you a feel for how things were in those troubled times.  more »
  • We walked to the Fort along Weymouth harbour and had only 30mins before closing but our ticket allows us back over the next 14 months. Great value if you are local. Lovely views as we were blessed...  more »
  • The restoration of the Nothe Fort is really well done. All staff were polite and accommodating. There is a coffee shop inside and picnic tables dotted around if you take your own. Don't forget to go down into the bowels of the fort to see many static exhibitions. The prices are reasonable and if offer still on you can have a yearly pass for the price of a day ticket. Lovely day out, will revisit.
  • Visited a couple of weeks ago with my family. Fascinating place. The exhibits are interesting, and exploring all the corridors within the thick fort walls is an unforgettable experience. The kids absolutely loved it. The activity for children - find as many mice as you can - kept them occupied, and encouraged them to explore the displays and exhibits. Staff were helpful and friendly. Facilities were clean. It's surprising how much is contained within the fort, so allow a full morning or afternoon to explore it all.
