Fort Nelson is one of six Palmerston forts, strategically positioned along the chalk ridge of Portsdown Hill, and is one of the best surviving examples of a 19th - century Victorian fort.

This fully restored Victorian fort was built to protect the great naval harbour of Portsmouth and is set in over 19 acres of glorious Hampshire countryside. Spectacular views of Portsmouth Harbour, the Meon Valley and South Downs National Park make it a unique place for your special event.

All the rooms available to hire are packed with individuality and heritage providing the perfect atmosphere and ambiance - adding that extra special something to your event.

Whatever you are celebrating, whether it's gathering family and friends in celebration of a significant birthday or anniversary, making a personal milestone or achievement, holding a civil ceremony or conducting a training session, seminar or product launch with colleagues, Fort Nelson will provide a unique venue for your event.

Make your event really go with a bang with a special gun salute - experience the noise and the power of one of our big guns being fired on The Parade.
