Information For Solent Forts

Spit Bank Fort is a beautiful Napoleonic Fort off the coast of Portsmouth for brides wanting to get married in one of the UK’s oldest ancient monuments. Our boat will transfer wedding guests the one or two miles to our Forts, with the Solent providing a wonderful backdrop for photos.

We hold wedding show rounds throughout the year for both Forts where you can meet the wedding teams and see the venues dressed for a wedding. Our teams are tried and trusted and have worked with the Solent Forts for many years.

Spitbank Fort (nine bedrooms) is a wonderful venue steeped in military history. Fort tours are offered as standard with many extra available for your wedding party including rib rides, spa treatments and wine and cheese tasting. Children under the age of 13 are not permitted on the forts. Children aged between 14 – 17 years old are allowed to stay as day guests returning to port on the evening boat.

Our wedding packages make budgeting easy – they are simple and straight forward. No hidden costs. One of our sales team will help you with your enquiry before introducing you to your dedicated Wedding Manager who you will meet six week prior to your big day finalising details. He/She is there to support you and assist you right up to your big day.

Ste & Kates wedding!! Spit Bank Fort.. Wow wow wow wow absolutely AMAZING!! You went out of your way massively to make their day as perfect as it was. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate everybodys needs, they had the patience of a saint puttin up with 19 drunk mancs , missing all the staff already and we only left today. Can't stop talking about the wedding and fort lol. Definitely highly recommended!!! The bedrooms and bathrooms were just out of this world and the view was just simply breath taking! And I hope to return some time in the future, Hope the staff see this that were working when we was there I just want to say a massive thank you for everything
