Hire Nothe Fort

Nothe Fort has magnificent views of the Jurassic Coast that stretch for miles, creating a unique venue for both private and corporate events.

The Fort’s terrace area has unrivalled views of Weymouth Bay and is an ideal location to hold social events with friends or colleagues. During the summer months the Fort provides a grandstand to watch the town’s firework displays while enjoying a barbecue.

The Parade Ground is surrounded on all sides by the Ramparts that provide elevated viewing areas to watch rallies, concerts and drama productions.

The Fort is a great location for weddings receptions, birthday parties, corporate entertainment, ghost hunting, exhibitions and staging military style events – the list is endless. We are licensed to sell alcohol and hold a full entertainments licence.







Weddings Receptions

The Fort with its stunning views over Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour offers visitors a unique and memorable experience. Add to this the fine architecture and impressive historic monument to make a superb venue to host your wedding.

We are happy to host receptions all year subject to availability, however as we area working museum we prefer receptions to commence from 3pm during May to September. Prices will vary depending on if you have an indoor reception or outdoor marquee (the latter is required for above 80 guests).
If you decide to hire our indoor function rooms the price will be £600 from 6.30pm to 12pm. Indoor faculties are not available before this time as we are a working museum and public attraction.
The venue hire charge is £1,200 with a maximum of 200 guests if a marquee is erected on the Parade Ground. We will supply a list of marquee companies if this is required. 

We offer you our parade ground with access to ramparts for photographic opportunities before evening reception commences, indoor bar area if required, toilet facilities (including disabled facilities), power and water supply to marquee and two trained door persons to assist guests. We also liaise with any chosen contractors direct to make sure the set up runs smoothly and access is maintained.
