Built on the north shore of the Isle of Wight to guard the Solent the
remains of Fort Victoria now house a Marine Aquarium, a
Underwater Archaeology Centre , a Planetarium and a Model Railway. The surrounding
Country Park offers Seashore and Woodland walks and the site is one of
the best vantage points for watching the Solents boats and shipping.
The Forts attractions together with the availability of a Countryside
Ranger to give guided walks of the seashore and woodland make Fort
Victoria an excellent interesting and educational visit for school groups
and any visitor to the Isle of Wight who wants to combine leisure with
education. Why not stop for lunch at Verdi's Cafe
whilst looking out over the Solent, then get back to the rest of the fun that the park offers.
The best of it all is the FREE on site parking! Each attraction is a very short walk from your car.
