It's a fantastic day out, you can arrive at 11am and still being looking around at 4pm, with a lovely lunch too. Have been visiting since I was a child, now 56, taken my own children, and now my grandchildren. Latest one had a visit age just 5months old with my grandson age 5 , a few weeks ago in glorious weather, who loved it. Especially counting the mice like we used to with my children . Well done to those that volunteer and keep the Fort going in difficult times.

Looks good Glen chips 🍟 in the cafe and a cup of coffee ☕️ Lol 😂

they serve great food.

Fantastic day out for everyone no matter what age . Game for the children as you go round of looking for the mice our grandson love it

Alison Tuttiett ..day out..

Look at that sky!!

See you in October for annual hols !

Great day out

Bless her. She’s looking amazing now 🥰

All the years of going to Weymouth have never visited so it’s on my list of places to visit 😍

Can someone tell me why they took the cafe down on that pier as it was a place to get shelter on a windy or rainy day!😡 Now it just looks so empty and uninviting!😡

I’ve missed this I have come away to Aberystwyth in wales it’s dull dreary looks like rain the beach is ?? I should have stayed home you can’t beat Weymouth and Portland

I love this view and sunsets here across The Fleet are amazing. So lucky to live within walking distance
