You are invited to join us at one of the UK’s most luxurious, secluded and extraordinary conference venues – the largest of three, converted Victorian sea fortresses located between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
On Friday 10th May 2019, we’re hosting a very special multidisciplinary education seminar on No Man’s Fort, focussing on a selection of rapidly expanding clinical and commercial developments in aesthetic medicine. This event is exclusively for medical aesthetic practitioners and clinical directors. Places are strictly limited to 50 people.
Our impressive clinical agenda will feature presentations and live demonstrations by a selection of highly experienced aesthetic clinicians and key opinion leaders, complimented by a wealth of industry-specific expertise from specialists in the fields of risk management, practice management and systemisation, and VAT accounting.
This is a rare opportunity for you to spend some quality time with like-minded people, enrich your network and engage with industry thought leaders who can add real value to the development of your practice.
Best of all you’ll have plenty of time to relax, enjoy a glass of fizz, tour the fort and soak up an unrivalled panoramic view of the dramatic seascape before joining us for a delectable three course dinner – this really is the venue that pushes the boat out.

1. Can we bring partners / business partners / members of staff?
Yes you may purchase tickets for any of the above, but only medical aesthetic practitioners are eligible to attend the clinical talks - your guests are free to tour the fort and enjoy the facilities during this time. Highlights include rooftop hot tubs, spa treatments, games rooms, and activities such as fishing that can be booked directly with Solent Forts in advance. For more information, visit: https://solentforts.com
2. What's the best way to get to Portsmouth?
If possible, we recommend you travel down on the day before and stay overnight. There are plenty of hotels in Portsmouth:
By Train: Portsmouth Harbour is the nearest station connecting directly to London Waterloo and London Victoria. Journey times are from just 1 hour 30 minutes. From Portsmouth Harbour station it’s only a 5 minute walk to Gunwharf Quays. From here board your boat transfer for a short ride across the Solent.
By Car: On arrival in Portsmouth, follow the brown signs for the ‘Historic Waterfront’ that leads you straight to Gunwharf Quays.
Flights: Flybe operate flights into Southampton Airport from Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds. The train from Southampton Airport to Portsmouth Harbour station takes approx. 1 hour.
3. Where do we park?
The nearest public car park is at Gunwharf Quay’s shopping centre (postcode for sat nav is PO1 3TZ). Zone A is the closest to the Solent Forts Port Office (which is opposite Customs House).
4. How do we get to the fort?
Transportation to and from the fort is by boat which departs from the Commercial Pontoon at Gunwharf Quays. There will be people on hand to guide you. It takes approximately 30—45 minutes to get to No Man’s Fort from Gunwharf Quays. There may be an initial stop at Spitbank Fort whilst other guests disembark.
5. What happens if we miss the boat?
The crewe run a tight ship and cannot guarantee being able to get you to the fort if you do not arrive within the specified time frame. We recommend you arrive at check-in 60 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Should unforeseen circumstances prevent you from getting to the fort on time, Solent Forts may be able to arrange a private transfer for you at an additional cost.
6. I have restricted mobility, is the venue adapted?
The fort is a classified ‘ancient monument’ and as such, there are limitations to what can be done to adapt this unique venue to be suitable for all. As well as getting to, on and off a boat, access to the fort is via a landing stage where guests must walk up a two storey ramp.
The original staircase on the fort is relatively narrow and steep which may prevent access to all levels for those with mobility restrictions. If you have reservations about mobility and access, please contact Solent Forts directly to discuss.
7. Is there a dress code?
Whilst there is no official dress code, we recommend that you wear flat shoes to steady your sea legs on the boat and advise wearing something warm for the boat transfers as all good sailors will know, it can get a bit breezy on a boat in the middle of the Solent!
8. What happens in bad weather conditions?
Access to the fort is of course subject to weather conditions and the safety of delegates is our primary concern. Solent Forts keep a very keen eye on the sea state, wave height and wind gusts and are regularly advised by the Harbour Master plus both their boat captains who have over 50 years’ experience sailing the Solent.
9. What's the refund policy?
You will only be eligible for a full refund if the transfer boats are unable to sail due to bad weather, or we are forced to cancel the conference on the day.
If you are unable to attend due to illness or a change in circumstances, you may transfer (sell) your ticket to someone else who you feel could benefit from attending. Please notify us as soon as possible and we will do everything we can to help you find a buyer.
