The fantastic Nothe Fort is open 11am to 4pm every day of the week until end October. Great fun for all the family loads to see and do, best views of the bay in town and a terrific cafe. If you’ve never been pop it on your wish list for your next visit but if you have why not head back again because the team there never seems to sit still and is constantly adding new things to see and do 😊
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
