  • Ok to visit but its in Gosport, which is hell to get into & hell to get out off. Prepare for long traffic queues.  more »
  • This has been fixed up significantly and made some great cafes mm. A nice part to pause during the walk from the Canoe Lake to Gunwarf.

  • Really great visiting this local fort. Nothing on display within the fort rooms like fort nelson, but interesting none the less. Nice location for picnic; however, opening once a month is not ideal. Such a shame.
  • Not very well kept externally, moat water level allowed to get too low. Water pump inoperative and has not been replaced. English Heritage needs to put more effort and investment in.
  • Part of a line of five forts one of which was demolished. The other three forts are still on MOD land and so are generally inaccessible. When open Fort Brockhurst gives a chance to see an almost original Victorian artillery fortification. There are others in the area but the only other one that has the same level of public access is Fort Nelson which is of a completely different design.
  • Fascinating place, Just wish they'd open more often than once a year
  • Getting a bit run down due to lack of care from English Herritage, could have work done and open it as an attraction, which would bring in revenue.
