Unique tour to No Man’s Fort

the impressive No Man’s Fort, one of the most remote attractions in Great Britain. Built between 1867 and 1880 to protect Portsmouth from the threat of a French invasion, the impressive fort has huge granite walls, reinforced by armour plating. While the feared French invasion never materialised, the man-made fort was used as a line of defence and as a signalling station during World War One and World War Two. Upon arriving at the fort by boat from Portsmouth harbour, there will be a guided tour, followed by lunch with 360 degree views of Portsmouth, and the surrounding forts.
