About No Man's Fort
This really is a unique venue! Where else can you stay in a former sea fort, only to be reached by boat, off the English coast? A small ferry or rigid inflatable boat takes guests from Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth to No Man's Fort, where up to 200 people can enjoy short breaks, Sunday lunch, weddings or other events. Enjoy a tour of the fort, originally built as part of the Palmerston sea forts following the 1859 Royal Commission which feared invasion by the French led by Napoleon III.
In 2009 work began on transforming the first of the Solent Forts purchased by Clarenco LLP, into a luxury hotel. Spitbank Fort was opened in 2012, in the same year that the partnership also bought the Horse Sand and No Man's Land Forts. The former being converted into a living museum, and the latter is a large, luxury hotel and events space.
No Man's Fort now has a wealth of rooms, spaces and facilities; an outside terrace, hot tubs, sauna, 22 luxury bedrooms, 5 function rooms and views through the spectacular glass roof in the central atrium.
