Royal Armouries - Fort Nelson
Fort Nelson is a superbly restored Victorian fort overlooking Portsmouth Harbour. It is home to the Royal Armouries national artillery collection with over 350 historic guns on display.
There are 19 acres of grass ramparts, underground chambers and tunnels to explore as well as daily gun salutes, costumed interpretations, professional guided tours, and cafe and gift shop. Throughout the year there is also an extensive special events programme.
Fort Nelson is also licensed for weddings and has a large range of function rooms for private or corporate hire.
This summer The Royal Armouries unveils its state-of-the-art new museum. In just under a year, this unique Victorian Fort has undergone a £3.5m redevelopment to create a museum fit for the 21st Century, supported by a grant of over £2m from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
