    I had an interesting 1/2 hour here. There is an exhibition of RAF and Navy on the ground floor with paintings, photos and models. Other than that, there isnt much else to see, but I enjoyed the sea vi...  more »

    Paid a visit with my teenage son. We've been to a number of forts along the south coast and this is by far the smallest. However it wasn't expensive to enter and the chap looking after the shop was ve...  more »

  • Great view from upstairs, quite informative for a low cost. Spent about an hour there. There's a beach near by with a shore full of little rocks/stones.
  • Great little castle. Small enough and cheap enough to visit that it can just make a nice little time filler for an afternoon with out turning into an epic, and made even better by the chap in charge on the day we visited who was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and engaged really well with the kids.
  • I visited calshot activity centre and would be give it 5 stars.I travelled on a sunday by public transport and obviously not the problem of the centre i think the transport link problems could be highlighted here so everyone knows.Hythe ferry is operating and costs 7 pounds return.may i suggest yiu check the times of the last ferry on a sunday.it is surprisingly early.there is a bus sevice to calshot monday to saturday.However on a sunday the bus terminates at Fawley village.from there you walk or get a taxi.it is quite a long walk.the last bus from fawley towards Southampton on a sunday is 18.07.There is no bus after that time on a sunday.the hythe ferry's last sailing was earlier than that.there is a timetable but sadly mine was binned.The day itself was great.if you have to use public transport to get to the activity centre sunday might not be a good idea.nice beach,loads of history,great climbing wall.thank you.
  • A nice tower for an hour's visit. A small exhibition space and access​ to the roof deck for impressive views.
  • Really love it at Calshot. You've got great views of the Solent and can see Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on a good day. You've got the activity centre (paid for activities) with a cafe, WiFi and toilet facility and you have the old castle that you can have a look around, for a price. There is also the old lifeboat station down there. Great place for a walk or to spend a day fishing (licence required from activity centre).
