Dover Castle

Of great military importance all the way into the 20th Century, Dover Castle was on the Front Line during World War Two. Venture deep inside the Secret Wartime tunnels and discover ‘the miracle of Dunkirk’. A compelling audio-visual tour guides you through the tunnels from which this incredible rescue operation was masterminded. The tunnels are fantastic to take shelter on a rainy day out too!

There’s more than enough for a full day out at Dover Castle. Follow the gripping story of wounded fighter pilots as they pass through the authentically recreated WWII underground hospital. Walk the battlements for breath-taking views across the English Channel, and explore the story of fortress Dover at the WWI fire command post. Visit the oldest surviving Roman lighthouse in Britain, or delve into medieval tunnels laced beneath the castle walls.

Coming up this half term, prepare to be scared at Dover’s Haunted Castle, 20 – 28 October, with kids crafts, ghost tours and a Halloween costume competition. For the grown-ups, take part in an evening of Murder Mystery, each night from 25th-27th October.
