Shoreham Fort

Shoreham Fort - logo

Shoreham Fort, build in 1857 to protect against Napoleon III, is a prototype for all the Palmerston Forts, including Fort Nelson in Portsmouth.

The Fort is the last of its kind and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. It has such a unique and diverse history from French spies to first films and the World Wars.

It is now looked after by the charity 'Friends of Shoreham Fort' who have regular tour days and events, including annual cannon firings.

Shoreham Fort is located at the eastern end of Shoreham Beach at the entrance to Shoreham Harbour.
