Description

Discover the rich military and maritime heritage of Landguard Fort, one of England’s best-preserved coastal defences, with a history spanning almost 450 years.

It is also the site of the last opposed seaborne invasion of England in 1667, and the first land battle of the Royal Marines.

The current Grade I listed Fort was built in the 18th C. and modified in the 19th C. with substantial additional 19th-20th C. outside batteries. It was continuously occupied through both World Wars and up until 1956.

Experience the dramatic story of this important fortification through both audio guides and guided tours. With a maze of rooms and passageways, bastion view points, artefacts, displays, exhibitions and special events, Landguard Fort offers something for all ages and interests.
