Spend a day at sea and enjoy a unique experience with your team

There are few people that can claim to have stayed the night on a small island located in the waters of the Solent, enjoying views to the coast of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. Of these few, even less will have enjoyed a business event, launch or team building day at sea.

The Solent Forts are unique man-made structures first put in place to do the job of protecting the country from a possible French invasion.

These days one of the main jobs of the forts is to provide inspiration to visitors, whether looking for a break from the everyday or teams of businesses looking to create an event that is unlike anything delegates attending have seen before.

Now these two private island hotels, No Man’s Fort and Spitbank Fort, are available for exclusive use private events and conferences. The luxury destinations have also been successful launch venues with celebrity guests, team building retreats and unique conferences or meetings.

A simple one and a half hour journey time from London will see your guests and delegates aboard one of these two impressive sea fortresses. At the Solent Forts, business meets pleasure and you literally wave goodbye to the traditional, stuffy boardrooms while watching the waves beneath you.

Windows look out onto the Solent, the top deck provides unrivalled sea views and the bedrooms encompass original features to create a stylish yet nautical atmosphere.
