Friday 22nd February

February open day
Midday to 4pm

Join us at Crownhill Fort for our first open day of 2019. We intend to start the season with a bang by including two cannon firings and a display of rifles.

  • See what life was like for the everyday soldier by visiting recreated barracks from 1890 and 1944
  • Explore 12 acres of grounds with some of the best views in Plymouth
  • Watch a display of Victorian signalling and have a go at sending your own message across the Parade Ground
  • Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Victorian guns in action 

A small selection of drinks and snacks will be available from the Guard Room but we will not be operating a cafe. Please note the Landmark accommodation will not be available to view at this event.

Schools, societies and groups of friends can pre book guided tours of Crownhill Fort on other weekdays during the month. Prices start from £120. Call the Fort Office or visit the tours page for more information
