Standing stoic in the Solent for 150 years, this former Naval hub has been converted into a boutique hotel and party venue. No Man’s Fort was originally designed to protect Portsmouth from the French, but will noW welcome revellers for a unique getaway experience.
Soldiers’ sleeping quarters are now luxury bedrooms and the lookout points make for an idyllic spot to lay back and unwind – although partying seems to be on the agenda. In the words of the proprietor, “if you’re looking for an adrenaline fuelled, action packed break, then there is nowhere else quite like No Man’s Fort”.
With 22 bedrooms in total, the fort sleeps 44 guests but has capacity for 200 visitors at any one time. Activities include cocktail making, fishing, kayaking, rum tasting, snooker and there’s even a treasure hunt.
For over $1000, wake up to unforgettable sea views in the Lighthouse Suite which spans over four levels and is fitted with a glass floor on each level. The Lighthouse Suite also offers a lounge area which converts to a double bedroom.
The two huge helipads on the fort’s roof shuttle guests from the mainland who are willing to pay about $670 to $1,000 per night.
