Brief history

Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour, Nothe Fort is one of the best preserved Forts of its kind. The advances in technology that affected the Fort are explained through many displays, exhibits and audio visual facilities located on the ramparts, gun decks and maze of underground passageways

Located at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour the Fort is a labyrinth of underground passageways and outdoor areas with stunning views of the Jurassic Coast. Constructed on three levels , which are easily accessed by means of a lift, the Fort is filled with displays, mammoth guns and cinema areas that chart the history of this large and magnificent Victorian structure which took 12 years to build. The Fort is now one of Weymouth’s major attractions and a venue for a wide range of events.

Ghostly sightings

Ghost, ghouls and things that go bump in the night are scaring up a host of new visitors to our historic and atmospheric attraction.

The site has always had a legendary ghostly whistling gunner and many people claim to have heard his eerie whistling in the Fort's extensive underground passageways. Tales of this phantom have been talked about for decades around Weymouth and the Fort affectionately has a passageway dedicated to him. Who this 'shade' actually is, is at this time, unknown.

A survey carried out in 2007 by The National Lottery discovered that the Fort was voted one of the spookiest locations in the UK; in fact staff members sometimes refuse to visit certain areas by themselves.

Other eye witness reports are that of a white figure seen walking the parapets of the building when it is locked and there should be nobody there.

Nothe Fort is becoming increasingly popular for paranormal activity giving our visitors an experience of a very different kind. Established paranormal organisations are setting up ghost hunts to give visitors a hands on interactive approach to experience the different techniques used to conduct investigations. Some using sophisticated scientific equipment, while others using more traditional methods.
