Solent Forts - Spitbank Fort
Solent Forts
The Solent Forts are a set of four armoured forts that were built to protect the town of Portsmouth, England from seaborne attack.
 
The forts were built pre World War I and continued to be used until the end of World War II. They were eventually decommissioned in 1960.
 
Although 'St Helen's Fort' remains unoccupied, two of the other Forts; 'Spitbank' and 'No Man's Land' have been turned into luxury hotels, often putting on big parties and featuring such luxuries as swimming pools and even their own 'lazer battle'.
 
Horse Sand Fort has been preserved as a museum and is available to visit by boat.
