Back in the late 19th century, England's fear of a French invasion was so prevalent that they constructed a series of intimidating sea forts off their southern coast in the Solent Strait. But they didn't serve much use once the threat was null. Enter: British company AmaZing Venues, who've smartly stepped in and, armed with a plan to transform them into several unique island getaways, bid on the properties.
They opened their first to the public a few years back, and this week marks the debut of their second, No Man's Fort. It's three times the size of the first, with four floors and 75,000 square feet of play and lounge space, complete with a cabaret bar, night club, laser tag arena, hot tub BBQ facilities, mini golf area, and a rooftop glass atrium.
The 22 suites start at $670 per night (or $1,700 for the lighthouse penthouse), but this sneak peek is totally free.
