Redoubt Fortress & Eastbourne Heritage Service

A Fortress in the heart of Eastbourne...

One of the South Coast's most historic landmarks, discover over 200 years of history at this Napoleonic Fortress, named one of the top ten military museums in the UK.
Built to defend the South Coast from Napoleon's forces it still stands as a unique monument to that time and now houses the largest military collection of its kind in the south of England, along with a vibrant events programme.

Eastbourne Borough Council's Heritage Service offers a diverse range of activities, from over 200 years of history at the Redoubt Fortress and Military Museum to educational tours and outreach services to schools.

Eastbourne Heritage Service manages the Redoubt Fortress building, visitor experience and its three military collections. The Fortress has undergone a period of transformation in 2013, with more work planned for Autumn/Winter 2014/15 which will see a move towards the fortress becoming a Heritage Hub for Eastbourne.
