    Easy to get to and interesting - however please note that it will only take you ten minutes to see the lot. You can park very close, and the area surrounding has many good walks and sea views.  more »

    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 »

  • Really enjoyed my walk around the fort , fantastic views. Small museum is unusual but very interesting. Also volunteers who run museum sell tea, coffee, burgers and hot dogs to raise money at weekends.
  • Interesting place to have a wander around. Some good working displays of WWII Era radio technology and also the massive gun batteries.
  • Really nice place for a walk .if you do the tour you will get really good factual information
  • Full of history and a great way to spend an hour or so.
  • 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.
