    Easy to order tickets and retrieve them! There is so much to see and do at Dover Castle, and there is lots of walking involved! Great museum quality, fascinating information and historical videos, and the NAAFI cafe had excellent food. The signage was very helpful and the maps were detailed and easy to read.

    The harbour view, the castle and grounds were all amazing. We loved the view as well as the history associated with the castle.

    Dover Castle was great and was made even better by the fact that the crowds were a fraction of the size of similar activities in London.

    Lovely smily helpful staff . It was a lovely day and we enjoyed seeing the castle

    Visit England's Dover Castle, an attraction that is comprised of secret wartime tunnels in this medieval royal palace created by Henry II. Follow around life-like hologram figures around the guest rooms, great hall, private chambers, armories, and the kitchen to really get a feel of what life was like back in the day. Visit the 12th-century court, climb to the roof of the Great Tower and peer down over the massive medieval castle from where you stand. The 1940 Miracle of Dunkirk will be revealed to you using film, audio, and archive photography: watch the rescue operation play out before your eyes as 300,000 British and allied troops were evacuated!

    You'll see the castle’s stories come to life with a Live Interpretation of its history in the open air. This will give you a chance to delve into the past in 1941 when the castle was the center of the Hellfire Corner. In the months after July, Live Interpretation will take you back to the medieval world of Henry II’s court.
