The fort is to be found on Portsdown Hill, overlooking the City of Portsmouth to the South and with a beautiful view of Southern Hampshire to the north. Less than an hour from the M25, half an hour from Southampton and fifteen minutes from Chichester and from Petersfield, this is an amazing setting, in a perfect location. What a wonderful way to spend a day out!
Our Contemporary Craft Shows at Fort Purbrook are staged inside the building so there’s no need to worry about the weather. Fort Purbrook is easily reached and is just a few minutes from the junction of the A3M and the A27. Look out for signposting to get you here easily.
