Do you enjoy getting out to visit places but hate the crowds? Come and visit Fort Brockhurst on a quieter weekday.

Fort Brockhurst is one of a number of forts built in the 1850s and 1860s to protect Portsmouth and its vital harbour against a French invasion. Largely unaltered, the parade ground, gun ramps and moated keep can all be viewed.
