Fort Nelson is a truly amazing place to visit. It is situated at the top of Portsdown Hill and away from the hustle and bustle of the city below it. There are stupendous views of the Spinnaker Tower and the whole city and coastline. There are rifles to practice shooting, many historical armaments as well as modern ones, ramparts to... 更多
Having dragged the kids off the xbox, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time at the fort. Car parking is free, the cafe serves nice food and coffee at reasonable prices, entrance is free to the fort and you will need more than one visit to fit it all in. Will be back soon
It was Free admission. There's loads of parking.The staff are really fab and very knowledgeable. I had a great time. It would be a lovely day out for children as its set in about 13acres of land. They had gluten free food too. The polenta cake was wonderful. The history there is amazing.

It was just fab my son loved it !! Be careful to look out for the correct signs for the armouries... 更多

Having said that there's lots to like here. The galleries inside have helpful... 更多
An excellent and free venue, full of artillery and canon - what more is needed, set in a beautiful location but take the tour and learn so much more. Highly recommended.
