Groups

Fort Nelson is a great destination for group organisers and coach operators.

Coach parking is available on site and admission to the museum is free.

If you plan to visit as a group (10 or more persons) we can help organise your visit to fit in with the time you have available.

To make the most of your visit we recommend that you take in the daily gun firing at 1pm.

Contact us to arrange a private guided tour for your group.
