Fort Nelson, Portsdown Hill Road, Fareham, Hampshire PO17 6AN


Imagine our charming Victorian fortress, set atop a hill overlooking the picturesque Solent and Meon Valley, as the unique setting for your special day.

Fort Nelson holds a civil licence allowing weddings and civil partnership ceremonies to take place in the elegant setting of the former Officers’ Mess.

The Fort features atmospheric rooms, private courtyards, panoramic views, and unique photo locations. We offer a range of catering options from buffets and afternoon teas to a more formal dining experience. Our food and drinks packages can be tailored to suit all tastes and budgets.

We would be pleased to arrange a visit for you to see our facilities and to discuss ideas for your wedding in more detail. To check availability, contact our Hospitality & Events Manager on
