Nothe Fort is Weymouth’s number one heritage attraction. Located at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour, the Fort offers excellent 360-degree views across Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Discover the maze of underground passages, a museum of the Fort’s history, parade ground, impressive guns positioned high on the ramparts, and fun trails to keep the children busy. We pride ourselves on our top-quality visitor experience, with friendly volunteers on hand to help.
‘Where were you for the Coronation of King Charles III?’, well Nothe Fort is the place to be. Come together and celebrate at our Coronation Festival!
Over the Bank Holiday, Nothe Fort invites you to join us for our Coronation Cream Tea Street Party, accompanied by the outstanding voices of the Wessex Musical Theatre, the Bovington Military Wives Choir and the Dorset Wrecks. Cream teas will be sold at the Fort View Café, and why not come and sit at our street party table where you can dine and chat!
You can also see a thought-provoking installation on our North Terrace created by local artist, a crown fit for the future – a giant modern crown made using recycled perspex.
Also, enjoy some Coronation themed crafts with crown making, a fun trail, and street party games.
We will be streaming the Coronation on Saturday 6th May.
