Overview

Fort Paull is the only fully intact Napoleonic Fortress in the North. Covering 10 acres of land this Museum is full of Underground tunnels and rooms, fantastic exhibits and on most weekends throughout the Summer, fantastic displays and events. The Fort is also the home of the worlds only surviving Blackburn Beverley Aircraft. There is also a fully licenced bar and tea rooms on site.

Walking around this place is almost surreal. It's like you have travelled back to the 1950's when historic attractions had a much less sophisticated approach to presentation to what we expect today. For the military enthusiast, on paper at least, it has it all: a...More

I used to visit For Paull all the time as a child and loved it but a recent visit with my god-children was less than impressive. The entire museum is in serious need of renovation and in many areas is beyond dilapidated. Many of the...More

Though appearing run down, this is due to age rather than neglect, there will come a time though when it will have to have serious work done, hopefully when it is they will think of an area where DVD's can be watched by disabled visitors,...More

What a pity that in the approx 4 years since our last visit the fort has become even more run-down. Some of the exhibits are very dark, damp, smelly and cobwebby. In fact I found some of the mannequins quite disturbing to look at and...More

I'm not entirely sure because when I went there was no dogs there, I probably wouldn't just for the loud noises and things, in case your dog gets scared. :-)
