Off to Spitbank Fort



So excited to finally be heading to Spitbank Fort. Its a small luxury hotel on a sea fort off the coast of Portsmouth. It only has eight suites inside former gun emplacements, a restaurant, bar and rooftop entertainment area. A private boat trip to the island, champagne reception, private tour of the Spitbank Fort, what more can a girl ask for?

Really excited! I have only been to Portsmouth a handful of times since I moved back to London in 2010. I was originally meant to go for Valentines day but due to the terrible weather we've had in the UK of late the winds had damaged the stairs on the fort so we had to reschedule. Finally that day has come! So I will be spending most of Sunday on an exclusive private island in Portsmouth!

Some of you may already know that I lived and studied in Portsmouth a good 4 years. Can you spot the Spinnaker tower in the background? That used to be(still is) the place to hang out in Portsmouth.

I will be sure to update the blog with pictures once I get back, but in the meantime here is a video of what the fort looks like. Also follow on Instagram or Facebook for regular updates.

  4. I used to live in Southampton, but I've never even heard of Spitbank. It looks lovely though, and Portsmouth is really nice. Have a great trip :)

  5. This seems to be really a great place. Never heard of it before. If you are passing by I would never guess it is a luxury hotel.

  8. Are you staying overnight or just for a day visit and meal? It looks like a giant buoy in the middle of the water. I look forward to reading more about the history of the fort.

  11. What a cool place to sleep for a night or two. I wonder if you can hear the water and boats as they pass by from your room.
