Access to Fort Widley

Unfortunately, these old buildings do not have lifts. Although the clubrooms are on the ground floor, the Fort is built on the side of Portsdown Hill, and access to the Fort is on the first floor (above the clubrooms).

There is only access to the Clubrooms using stairs (22 Steps).

Sorry if this affects any prospective visitors
