Museum for Hire

Experience this fully restored Victorian Fort built to protect the great naval harbour of Portsmouth and set in 19 acres of Hampshire countryside.

Feel the noise and power of the great guns and discover a truly atmospheric and unusual setting.

The fort is a very different place to hold a conference or corporate function, so if you want to make a big statement then why not give us a call. You can also get married here too.

A flash in the pan

This expression originates with the misfire of a flintlock or similar gun. The powder in the pan was supposed to ignite the main charge in the barrel. Sometimes only the powder in the pan flashed without firing the main charge.
