Sealand [1] is a sea fort in the North Sea, located 10 km off the coast of Suffolk, England. It is best known for its (unrecognized) claim to be the world's smallest sovereign nation. However, it is currently regarded as a micronation by most non-Sealanders.

Get in[edit]

Long entirely off-limits to tourists, the U.K. travel company Church & East now take booking for visits for groups of 1-5 people. An entry visa costs $100 Sealand dollars (£50), the return transfer from Suffolk SX$120 and a day trip/one-night/two-night stay (full board) SX$100/200/300 per person.

Get around[edit]

Walk. The entire habitable area of the fort is 550 sq.m.

See[edit][add listing]

The sea, the fort and the English coastline. The amazing ocean view will leave you gasping, the blue water will leave you at peace. Also see the old fashion style of living in the other Sealand forts.

Do[edit][add listing]

Take part in Sealand events and help the locals with daily chores that will keep Sealand a nice and clean place. Pay 31.25 pounds to become OFFICIAL Sealand royalty.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Online Sealand has a comprehensive catalog of all things Sealand. This includes Tee-shirts, stamps, and even lordships.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Often flounder can be found beached on the platform, this serves as a magnificent feast for the locals. They also engage in the consumption of of cooked foods supplied from England.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Drink British pub style drinks, with of course water that was not from the ocean.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

Sleep like an old marine in the old fashion beds they slept in, or sleep in a nice normal bed if the modern days are more your thing. The Sealand cat also walks around so he may end up in your room, don't fret he does not attack, he does love Sealand though.

Get out[edit]

Unless you're planning to swim your way to the coast, you'll get out the same way you came in: By helicopter, or by Boat if you took the hook.
