Nothe Fort Museum of Coastal Defence - more than just a fort.

Award winning visitor attraction offering low cost entry & great value come rain or shine.

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 to watch the 2012 Olympic sailing events.

Come rain or shine! Great value for all!
