Details

Cloaked in mystery and protected by its impressive ramparts, Newhaven Fort has been keeping secrets safely hidden for almost 150 years. Venture inside this extraordinary Victorian structure to discover its fascinating and surprising past and help to celebrate and forge its exciting future.

Journey deep into the vast network of tunnels, venture on to the ramparts and gun emplacements to soak up the stunning views, and unlock the secret stories of the people who lived and worked at Newhaven Fort.

Explore hundreds of genuine military artefacts housed in the casemates lining the Parade Ground and reveal their hidden history. Don’t miss the realistic air-raid recreation in the Blitz Bomb Shelter and the fascinating Home Front exhibition.

There’s also an ever-changing programme of living history events and activities for children. Visit the website for all the latest details or follow Newhaven Fort on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (hyperlink all channels).

Please note: Friendly dogs on leads are welcome. Most of Newhaven Fort is accessible. However, some of the tunnels and ramparts are not accessible due to the nature of the architecture and building structure.
