  • The Fort at Helens Bay is a very well maintained WW 1&2 Coastal Battery. Open every day. There is a car Park there. You can also access the north Down Coastal Path which runs from Bangor to Holywood. ...  more »
  • I've been a Grey Point to see the guns and to make me explain some anecdotes about World War II. The volunteers who run the Museum tell you everything you want. Kinda hard for me to understand. In a couple of rooms there is the Museum of radio and as I recall also an Enigma, but I'm not sure. Under close to guns there is a picxcolo Museum of uniforms and weapons.

  • Been here there times now. Staff, who are volunteers, are great very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Great picnic area and plenty of room for kids to play outside when it's a good say. Would love to see the fort get a grant and upgrade facilities...even as it is its a hidden gem!
  • Unexpected treat! Visited with my father who has vivid memories of WW2. The volunteers who run the site are friendly and know their stuff. Nice area within the site for a picnic. Excellent for area for a walk and a swim(if you are feeling brave). With a small grant they could take the museum to the next level.
  • Beautiful and amazing. Great history.
  • Nice place. Didnt know something like this excised here. Def worth a visit guns are in good order and they fire them on special occasions 😀
  • A fascinating and unique piece of local NI history. Very well preserved fort and military artifacts. A must for any visitors to Helen's Bay!
