Decided to visit as it was a lovely day and read the reviews on here. Great position up on the cliffs defending Newhaven harbour and Seaford Bay. Very good value for money at £7.50 for adults and you ... more »
Wonderful experience. Full of all things military. If you like forts, guns and history then this is definitely for you. Great value for money. Ideal for families. Best to go when the weather's good as there's so much to see outdoors. Terrific displays. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.
We took our 7 and 9 yr olds and there was a lot more to see and to do than you expect. We spent about 4-5 hrs there in the end. Friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff giving demos and allowing you handle objects. Lots of displays, tunnels and underground rooms to explore and incredible views. We'll worth a visit!
Great day out with 3 of our grandchildren. We spent 5 very enjoyable hours at Newhaven Fort. All 3 grandchildren, from the 7 year old to the 2 year old found something to keep them entertained - handling real guns, experiencing an air raid in a shelter, exploring the gun inplacements and tunnels and learning lots of interesting facts. Great day out. Thank you.
Brilliant little museum. So much good stuff about the history of this seemingly pointless little fortification. Lots of exhibitions, some fine tunnels and excellent view over the harbour.
NEWHAVEN FORT ... What a jewel of a place, came here with a car club, never even knew it existed, great views of Newhaven Port, helpful staff, nice cafe, lots of interesting displays...DEFFO WORTH A VISIT !
