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 »
Excellent afternoon visit. I went for the classic car show. However the rest of the Fort is amazing. Loads of history kids will live the tunnels and also the gun emplacements. Super views overlooking the harbour and local sights.
A brilliant venue for parties & social events. Loads of atmosphere and great views over Seaford Bay, South Downs and the channel.
Fascinating complex of buildings and tunnels - very popular with children. Also includes a good exhibition about the Home Front, with an air raid shelter that simulates a bombing raid. Cafe and adventure playground. Prices are reasonable.
We do American Civil War re-enacting here every year with our society called "SOSKAN"....the "Southern Skirmish Association". Excellent views, good cafe, very good WW2 displays, and friendly, knowledgeable staff, make this a good day out!
Spent a good few hrs walking round the passage ways and finding lot to look at well worth going. Old fashion cafe there to👌☕🍰🍽🚽🏅📲📸📰
