  • great tudor castle , as is the one at walmer but that is a bit polished as it was turned into a residence , but this how it should be. A great part of the town and well worth a visit.  more »
  • I like to visit castles. However , i don't really think that this particular castle warrents its admission fee. Its only small and of course it has its history , but it doesnt take long to get round. ...  more »
  • I hadn't known about the string of forts built by Henry VIII iof which Deal Castle was one. Very interesting history and building. Shame some of the character ausios were broken!  more »

  • Really an interesting castle to visit. Its flower petal shape is intriguing. The outside is done quickly if you're not much into canons. The inside and especially the ground floor is a small logical maze -the mind is confused by the rounded shapes. They offer wood replica of the guns of the time. Perfect to keep young kids active. One room has also a 3D puzzle of the castle to do.
  • Lovely little place, has a good atmosphere and well run. English Heritage have done it again, really good place to visit and spend some time with friends and family. Historically I learned a lot including that Fortresses and Castles don't have the best drainage systems lol. The lower levels are more than just a little damp, but Wellington boots are supplied so your feet won't get wet below ground level. Only drawback is there's not a lot of info in the way of who lived there, worked there and why, just a few more displays needed. So all in all I'll be going back if I'm in town.
  • Deal Castle is well worth a visit. It's kept medieval in design. Take a tour it's worth it. If you can go into the moat still it's quite impressive. Walmer castle is better but you really need to look around both.
  • An interesting castle, well worth making a part of the day (particularly if you have a membership to English Heritage). Fun for kids to look around the tunnels and good information about why the castle was built and its significance in British and European history.
  • Lovely small castle with plenty of charm and charactor. We went and had a good look around for about 45 minutes to an hour. There are lots of nooks and cranneys to look in, plus some local history about the castle and what it was built for. I my opinion a very interesting visit.
