Two Victorian Island forts up for auction.

Spitbank Fort and No Man’s Land Fort off the Isle of Wight each have a guide price of £1,000,000.

Spitbank Fort is one of three forts built during the 1860s to guard Portsmouth from French naval attacks, and it has upper walls consisting of thick armour plating, constructed to resist high explosive rounds.

It consists of nine guest suites, staff accommodation, event spaces, and an accessible private landing stage.

No Man's Land Fort's main entrance is via the lower level and boat landing stage.

Meanwhile, the roof deck has additional facilities like hot tubs, a fire pit, a bar, and Nordic bothy.

There is also the Lord Nelson Pub, The Cabaret Bar Nightclub, and extra entertaining spaces are positioned on the lower and upper levels of the fort.

David Leary, NAVA Propertymark member and Director of Essential Information Group, said:

“These two Island forts have so much potential to be transformed into something amazing for anyone who is fortunate enough to buy them.

"They both need people who believe in their potential to bid for them.
