Nothe Fort is one of Weymouth's premier visitor attractions offering something for all the family!

Enjoy the stunning views of the Jurassic Coast from the picnic areas on the ramparts and newly-opened terrace, or go underground and explore the many tunnels and secret passageways beneath the fort, including the spooky ghost tunnel. 

Why not keep the children entertained with the popular mouse hunt. Find the decorated mice throughout the fort to claim a certificate at the end of your visit!

Once done exploring, visit the Fort View Café; it is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake, surrounded by the arched casemates that enclose the parade ground. The gift shop also offers a vast range of products including souvenirs, books, toys, and locally produced food and drink.

The whole fort is dog friendly, meaning that EVERY member of your family can enjoy a day out at Nothe Fort!

"The staff were all very helpful and friendly. There is plenty to see and lots of information about the history of the fort and surrounding area. For the children there are mice to find and spot. Very enjoyable for all ages." [Trip Advisor Review 2020]

"Friendly and informative guides and a sensible but not overly intrusive covid precaution policy." [Trip Advisor Review 2020]

“We Are Open! We Are Safe!” is the new motto of Nothe Fort. The staff and volunteers have worked hard to put in place new procedures to ensure they deliver on this promise. This includes the implementation of a one-way system, hand sanitiser stations, and protective screens at reception.

With an annual pass into the fort, you will have free re-entry for all this year… and all next year too!

No pre-booking is required.

Last admission 1 hour before closing time.
