Quiet Time visit to Fort Brockhurst + WW1 exhibition (Event from 2018)
Talk / Audio
Gunner’s Way, Elson, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 4DS – opposite ‘The Range’ store
If you dislike the bustle of busy weekend visiting then come along and enjoy Fort Brockhurst on this ‘quiet’ Friday.
Explore this massive Victorian fortress at a leisurely pace. Open to all people but especially suitable for visitors with disabilities.
Handle old objects and discover the fort’s current role as a major Collection Centre for English Heritage, housing thousands of fantastic artefacts that span wide eras of time and place.
Handling objects this day will be especially chosen to be good for visitors with sensory impairment.
Also, for the WWI centenary, there will be displays of work inspired by local community groups about Gosport and the role of its people during 1914-18. Many elements of this are tactile and interactive.
We welcome individuals, groups and families with special needs on this Friday (although you can come on busier weekend times if you wish). If you would like to book in a group or talk to us about your specific needs, please call Terry on 07932 732865 to discuss or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your query.
Hot and cold drinks and snacks available on site.
Or why not enjoy a picnic and just relax in the grounds.
Please note: Last entry to fort at 1415 to allow for 1500 closure.
- Friday 14 September: 1100 to 1500
