  • Amazing staff! We had limited time due to closing but the kids (3-7) had a great time playing Victorian school and colouring!  more »
  • It was my first time visiting there and the fact that it was a free entry was an added bonus. Lots of history and lots to see.  more »
  • Free to get in spent a few hours looking around its nice to see the history of the local area living in Gosport traffic is not an issue but if your traveling from outside the area coming into Gosport ...  more »

  • 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.
