Fort Victoria Country Park is centred around the 19th C fort. There's free parking, a cafe, toilets, a grassy picnic area, access to an unspoilt beach and a nature trail in the woodlands which cover the cliff top in this region. The fort also houses a number of small museums, and aquarium and a model railway. On holiday with our dog, my wife and I really enjoyed the views, and our dog loved everything about the beach and nature trail. We picnicked and enjoyed a hot drink from the cafe while watching the busy channel of the Solent - and were lucky enough to watch a yacht race. The whole area is well kept, and useful information boards inform about the fort's history from its beginnings through to the 20th C and WW2.
Very interesting place
