There are various places to spend Valentines day and the Spitbank Fort in Portsmouth is top of our list.

Fort 2

Opulent and quirky, the fort is situated in the middle of the river Solent, offering scenic views of the landscape and nothing but unadulterated sea air. You certainly wont be stranded – there is a private launch to transfer you to and from the mainland and once on the fort you can treat yourself to the hotel’s open-air hot-pool, fire-pit, wine cellar, sauna, elegant bars and a lot more.

At £720 for a couple, the fort certainly isn’t cheap but on the flip side, this isn’t your everyday experience. Visit Virgin Experience Days for availability and Solent Fort for more information on the fort itself.
