This is the last fort of its kind and has a varied history from defence, to its attachment with the charge of the light brigade, to being the first film studio. Come and visit on our open days or events, for a guided tour, a run around or a cup of tea or cake from Food For Fort

We decided to take a Valentine's Day stroll along Shoreham Beach and ended up at the Fort. Our children loved exploring and the history of the Fort was fascinating. It's free too! A shame that the "Food for Fort" kisosk was closed. Prices looked reasonable!
