Information For Nothe Fort

Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour, Nothe Fort is one of the best preserved forts of its kind. The advances in technology that affected the fort are explained through many displays.

Our Victorian Fort is situated at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour and is a unique setting with stunning views of Weymouth Bay and the Jurassic Coast. This impressive historic monument can add more than a little extra to your special day.
From a simple to the most elaborate wedding reception we invite you to discuss your requirements with us. We would be only too happy for one of our Wedding Team to show you the Fort and take in the magnificent setting of the Jurassic coast.

The Nothe Fort Artillery Volunteers can be hired to attend your wedding and will design their firing drill based on your requirements. In their authentic period uniforms, they will create an impact with their large cannon and entertain your guests with lots of loud bangs and smoke. This will, and dare I say, make this the perfect place for a shot gun wedding.

We even offer a ghost tour for those who have the nerve to visit our narrow tunnels located in the bowls of the Fort and listen to the eerie stories synonymous with this haunted historic building as you are guided around.

Situated at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour on the end of the Nothe Peninsula, the Fort enjoys views from Weymouth Bay round into Portland Harbour. The parade ground is sheltered offering a large flat area for the erection of a marquee and guests are welcome up on the Ramparts to enjoy the view of the stunning Dorset Coast line. Visit one of Dorset’s most unique Wedding Venue and see for yourself!
This really is a venue like no other!

We recently got married at the Fort and luckily the weather was amazing so it could be held outside on the terrace by the search light overlooking Weymouth bay and coastline, a beautiful setting. The staff were very helpful indeed with suggestions, hints and tips and setting up the venue for us. A very special day we will never forget
