I got married here. Lovely venue, lovely dancefloor, food was good but poor attention to detail in some areas, which let it down. More to do with Co-ordinating staff. No one was there to let suppliers... read more »
Crownhill Fort is open to visitors on the last Friday of every month but it is best to check the Landmark Trust's website to see what's on. The August open day was great (the sunny weather helped!) as... read more »

Classic example of how awful planning is in England, especially plymouth. This should be packed full of visitors yet it is hidden inside an awful housing estate that backs onto it on several sides and on others is an industrial estate then commercial premises and a dual carriageway. What could have been an asset has Ben hidden forever behind pure dross. A damning indictment of planning not seeing the wider picture. Yes the national trust should take this over as it is closed most of the time, so not surprised the landmark trust makes little from it. It is also overgrown on the outside and needs some tlc. A real waste and great example of how we cock things up big time in England with our heritage assets.
Great afternoon out
Historic Crownhill Fort is a "Palmerston Fort" and was built to protect Plymouth from attacks from the French in Victorian times. Well worth a visit and a walk around the exterior is historically wonderful with a lot of battlements and open space. Tranquil and beautiful setting. Be aware that the Fort may be closed and this can be frustrating for casual visitors. A walk around the outside would possibly make up for a wasted journey. David
this great devon attraction is open only a few times a year,if the landmark trust can't make the most of a jewel in devons crown. then please let the national trust run it.the trust has so many boring stately homes that this would be a great change for people with a national trust pass (my wife bought it)
