Visitors listening to a story teller

Galleries

Probably the best surviving example of a Victorian fortress, Fort Nelson has been restored to its original state, together with important parts of its Second World War heritage.

Explore the vast 19-acre monument, including the underground tunnels and magazines, and from the ramparts enjoy spectacular views of the Solent and Meon Valley.

Fort Nelson has undergone a multi-million pound redevelopment transforming it into a museum for the 21st century with a new visitor centre, a new café and new galleries, including the magnificent Voice of the Guns gallery.
