Is This Britain’s First Offshore Nightclub?

Earlier this year, Scottish promoters Minival launched a crowdfunding campaign to buy No. 1, The Thames and turn it into a nightclub. The 19th century fort sits in the Thames estuary between the Isle Of Grain and Sheerness and is only connected to the mainland by a walkway at low tide.

Brilliantly, the 1855 gun tower was listed on property website Rightmove, advertised for sale as a “5 bedroom house”. We especially like the architect’s drawing of a speedboat pulling up to the front door. Bond villain-esque.

The Independent reports that this rustic property with unrivalled sea views has now been bought by an anonymous investor for £400,000 – a mere 4/5ths of the asking price.

The possibility remains that the owners may want to turn this bomb-proof tower into a nightclub, entertaining legions of pissed people out in the middle of the sea. And what ill could ever come of that?
