Solent Forts offer something truly unique for a wedding day. Set off the coast of Portsmouth, these two historic naval forts have been renovated into amazing island hotels.

The two venues can cater to different sized ceremonies and receptions, up to 60 and 200 respectively. Rooftop facilities (bars, hot tubs, sauna, light house), cosy wine cellars and unbroken views of the horizon set Solent Forts apart from their competition.


The history of No Man's and Spitbank forts extends back over 150 years, originally constructed to protect Portsmouth from the threat of invasion from Napoleon III. The forts continued to act as working military structures until the end of the second world war.


Spitbank Fort

The smaller and more intimate of the two venues, Spitbank Fort, boasts a variety of charming ceremony and reception rooms. The Crow's Nest, Officer's Mess, Victory Bar, Wine Cave, Courtyard and Rooftop Terrace provide indoor and outdoor options for your special day.

Maximum capacity - 60 guests

Grandiose and steeped in history, No Man's Fort is the perfect venue to celebrate in style. Its spacious glass atrium, cabaret bar, rooftop spa and 22 luxurious guest rooms can accommodate for larger wedding ceremonies and receptions.
