ATTRACTIONS at Landguard will be opening their doors for free this month at a special community open day to entice more people to visit the peninsula.
The event is taking place on Saturday, May 11 from 10am to 5pm and is a chance for people to see what goes on at the fort, museum, nature reserve, bird observatory and shipping viewing area.
Organisers hope it might encourage people to visit more regularly, and also to get involved with the attractions.
The peninsula’s season has got off to a good start with a host of well-attended Easter activities, and a visit to the fort for a two-day living history camp by the 95th Rifles historical re-enactment group, and a full programme of events is planned for the months ahead.
The new visitor centre is also due to open this month.

Events co-ordinator Stephen Rampley said: “The community open day will be a great day out for all ages.
“Both the museum and the fort will have free admission and there will be unique guided tours and some historical talks, a family treasure hunt, and a craft fair with about 15 to 20 stalls.”
