A visit to Solent Forts

Last year we paid Solent Forts a visit. We had a guided tour around No Man’s Fort and captured some footage whilst on our trip. The forts are truly amazing venues and are great for Corporate events, Exclusive use, Weddings, Parties, Romantic weekends away, day trips and much more.

The forts were built to defend Portsmouth against French invasion but never fired in anger. There are three Solent Forts located out in the Solent between the mainland of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight:

Spitbank Fort, Drop anchor at an award winning hotel which boasts a variety of function spaces.
