Travel by boat for a once-in-a-lifetime stay on a historic Solent fort, including transfers, breakfast, a three-course dinner, prosecco on arrival and a guided tour

  • Take to the water for an unforgettable stay at a converted Napoleonic sea fort in the Solent, No Man’s Fort. The 75,000 square-foot fort was built between 1865 and 1880, as part of four forts that were designed to protect Portsmouth from attack. Enjoy glorious sea views from the privacy of your elegant room.

  • Grab some rest and relaxation in the onboard spa, otherwise known as ‘Espa at Solent Forts’. With rooftop hot tubs and a sauna at your disposal, your spa experience will surely be one to remember. Try a facial or massage for proper rejuvenation and restoration.

  • Wrap up around the rooftop firepit and enjoy a hot chocolate as you take in a spell of stargazing. There are also a choice of bars and a pub on hand to provide the perfect spot for a pre- or post-dinner tipple, as well as gourmet dining and even afternoon tea. Head up to the lighthouse for 360-degree views.
