15. No Man’s Fort, England
Located in the island of Solent near the coast of Portsmouth, England, No Man’s Fort wasn’t actually intended to be a hotel. It was initially a naval fortification built by the British navy between 1861 and 1880 to prevent the French army from invading Britain. For over 150 years, this gigantic black, iron-plated fortress has stood strong against the tides until it was refurbished into a hotel in 2015.
Even though it was built to prevent the French army from invading the British shores, it’s ironical that it didn’t serve its initial purpose. That’s because it was completed after the British and the French made a truce. Having been turned into a hotel, No Man’s Fort can hold up to 200 guests who are treated to arguably the quirkiest accommodation in Britain. You’ll spend a night where soldiers once slept and kept their heavy artillery, but that doesn’t take away the fact that you’re technically stranded on a huge rock as it can only be accessed by boats and small ships.
