Three sea forts – No Man’s Fort, Spitbank Fort, and Horse Sands Fort, have gone extreme makeovers after being abandoned to rot off the south coast of England. Once, these places were used by soldiers, but now, they are becoming popular vacation destinations, attracting tourists and guests from all across the globe.
A company named AmaZing Venues has been improving these tiny defense bases and turning them into lush accommodations, with interiors similar to those that are seen in luxury cruise ships and 5-star hotels. So, what was once a base for the British military has now transformed into classy venues, with private upscale lounges, bars, and pools.
Among the modern features of the forts are laser tag and gaming rooms, wine tastings, fine dining restaurants, fort-top hot tubs, and dance clubs.
According to the website of AmaZing Venues, the sea forts are “great for Gatsby-themed parties, Bond nights, and Royal Britannia-themed lunches”.
It was Spitbank Fort that opened first in 2012, and then followed by No Man’s Fort last April 2015. They are planning to open the last fort, Horse Sands Fort, in 2016 as a museum. They are also thinking of renovating St. Helen’s Fort, however, plans are not yet disclosed.
As for now, marvel at the beauty of the three ports the company has yet opened to the public:
