The perfect location for private island parties
No Man’s Fort is located in the South of England, just off the coast of Portsmouth, in the waters of the Solent Strait. The 7,000 m² former military defense port – located just 2.2 km away from the Isle of Wight – was originally intended to defend Portsmouth from the threat of a French invasion. After fulfilling its role as a sea fortification, the property initially stood abandoned before being snapped up by a British entrepreneur and undergoing a transformation to one of the quirkiest, most exclusive venues in the UK. You’re guaranteed an unforgettable time on this luxurious island escape.
Prices start from GBP 400 per night based on two people sharing the Executive Suites. The price includes breakfast, lunch and evening meal; a tour; use of all the facilities and boat transfer. For more information, please contact the Vladi Private Islands Travel Team.
