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.

Not worth the entrance fee for a family. Some very weird displays, some actually quite disturbing, and the whole place is run down and a bit dangerous for young kids. Really needs some time and money spending on it if they want to attract more...More

This could be a great place to visit but needs a lot of updating! I understand that you can't change the buildings too much as its national heritage but the steps are corroding and are therefore dangerous. The mannequins are old looking and the clothes...More

Visited her in June this year. Had high hopes, but on entering the reception area the smell hits you. The receptionist was helpful. I was pleased to only pay for 2 adults and the kids were free. So not worth the admission fee. The gift...More

Fort Paull was exceptional value for money. It is a heritage site that is under a preservation order so apparently as I understood it was limited as to development of the displays. There are some truly amazing sites to see here. The last Blackburn Beverley...More
