Nothe Fort, Weymouth Reviews

  • Have been to Weymouth lots of times but first time to the fort. Very interesting, good value. My daughter was more concerned with finding all the mice that were hidden in the exhibitions (62 out of 70 possible). Recommend.

  • Seems somewhat limited when you first enter but once you either go down a floor there is so much to read and learn about, or; if you to the very top the views on a clear day are wonderful.

  • Our family has been holidaying in Weymouth for the past 14 years, and the holiday wouldn't be complete without a trip to the Nothe. It is packed full of exhibits from the Victorian period, when the fort was constructed, through World War 2, to the modern day use.

  • Nothe Fort. In the centre of the town lies Weymouth Harbour; although it was the reason for the town's foundation, the harbour separates the two areas of Melcombe Regis ( the main town centre ) and Weymouth ( the southern harbour side ) from each other. Since the 18th century they have been linked by successive bridges over the narrowest part of the harbour. The present Town Bridge, built in 1930, is a lifting bascule bridge allowing boats to reach the inner harbour. The Royal National Lifeboat Institution stationed a lifeboat at Weymouth for the first time on 26 January 1869. A boathouse was built with a slipway by the harbour and is still in use, although the lifeboat is now moored at a pontoon. I visited this Fort on the 4th August 2017 and was surprised by the layout and the interesting exhibits found here at this unusual and well maintained Fort. Nothe Fort is a fort in Weymouth, Dorset, England. The fort is situated at the end of the Nothe Peninsula, which juts eastwards from the town of Weymouth, and Weymouth Harbour, into the sea to the north of ex-military Portland Harbour. The fort is located next to Nothe Gardens. The coastal defence was built between 1860 and 1872 by 26 Company of the Royal Engineers to protect Portland's harbour, which was then becoming an important Royal Navy base. Shaped like the letter D, the fort's guns covered the approaches to both Portland and Weymouth harbours. The design included bomb-proof casemates for cannons arranged around the circular sides, and deep magazines beneath the straight, landward side. The fort played an important role in World War II, when the harbour was used as base by the British and American navies.

  • The fort is located on a headland with beautiful views on the Weymouth and Portland bay. It tells the story about how our army had defended England throughout time. Worth a visit. There are cannons and weapons displayed in the museum. This attraction is very well run and maintained by a vulonteer association. A nice café is also located within the premises. Entrance is £8adult/1£ children. Lots of scenic walks around the fort, well signposted gardens and coastal path and a harbour walk with café, plus the remains of a railway that used to connect the harbour just below with the fort barracks. A great day out with picnic.
