Welcome to Spitbank Fort

Spitbank Fort sits proudly amongst our trio of Solent Forts, off the coast of Portsmouth, which also include No Man’s Fort and Horse Sand Fort.  

Spitbank Fort has already been creatively restored and is regarded as one of the most exclusive venues of the planet. As Spitbank Fort can only be reached by boat it provides a level of privacy and exclusivity that cannot be matched by other Venues and hotels.

The nine bedrooms in this unique exclusive use venue are luxuriously fitted to the highest standard with features including an open-air hot-pool, wine cellar, sauna and games rooms. 

Retaining a lot of its original features and boasting supreme comfort, together with the latest technology, it’s not hard to be bowled away by this AmaZing Venue.
