Open Day @ Coalhouse Fort
Join us at Coalhouse Fort for a behind the scenes look!
Guided tours are conducted by a group of volunteers and give an in-depth insight for you to learn about the history, how the fort was used and why it was built at this site. It will take you on a safe and informative tour of the building and of normally out of bounds areas to the general public, including The Magazines (know by most children as dungeons), the Roof area where you will see some magnificent views over the river and Casemate areas.
Each tour last approximately 45 to 60 minutes (please see additional information below).
The cost of the tour is within the entry price to the Fort.
Please note: Tours are offered subject to availability and the time will depend on weather conditions, especially on the roof. Groups are limited to a maximum of 25 people due to small spaces and are conducted on a first come first served basis. We urgently need more volunteers to act as guides so if you would like to join us, please speak to a member of staff during your visit.
