About Fort Nelson

Portsdown Hill Road, Fareham
Hampshire, PO17 6AN

On the hunt for a unique wedding venue? Fort Nelson in Fareham is exactly that. 

Located just a couple of miles outside of Portsmouth and nestled within 19 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside, this historic wedding venue offers couples the chance to say ‘I do’ at a fully restored Victorian fort overlooking the Solent. 

Fort Nelson’s surroundings are totally spectacular and the venue’s fascinating history lends itself to a dramatic wedding day backdrop.

The Fort holds a civil ceremony license, allowing weddings and civil partnership ceremonies to take place in the Point of the Redan or the Ante Room. Point of the Redan was originally the officers’ Billiard Room, which has a capacity of 80 seated guests. The Ante Room has recently been restored to its full Victorian splendour and has magnificent views of the Solent and the Isle of Wight from its large picture window. This space has a capacity of 45 seated guests. 

After you’ve said your vows, how about treating your guests to a tour of the museum and venue for an experience they’ll never forget? 

Whether you get married at Fort Nelson or elsewhere, it’s the perfect setting for your wedding reception. The largest room has a capacity of 100 standing guests or 80 seated, so you won’t have to cut corners on your guest list. 

When it comes to your catering, there are plenty of food and beverage options on offer at Fort Nelson. The dedicated team will be able to offer advice and guidance when it comes to creating the perfect buffet from fine, local ingredients. If you’re dreaming of a fine dining experience, the team can recommend the services of their carefully selected catering partners.
