While we were away recently we had such a brilliant family holiday, probably our best yet! In the morning before we had to catch our ferry to head home we pulled in at Fort Victoria (Isle of Wight) just a couple of minutes from the ferry port and had a look around.
We had parked there earlier in the week to go for a walk along the coast as it is in the country park area and free to park, but the fort had been closed then.
There are several things to do in the old fort building that is remaining, an aquarium, a planetarium, model railway and a cafe, there are also lots of walks and woodland areas to explore as well as the pebble beach there. We only had a couple of hours before we had to leave to catch our ferry but you could spend quite a bit of time there!

There are steps up the side of the fort so that you can have a look from the roof, the view is beautiful. The day we went the sea was calm and really blue, you could see for miles, all the boats.
