  • 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 »

  • Great place to visit with or without kids. Brilliant tour you can do you self with headphones telling you everything about it. Lots of levels and great dungeons. Good views form top also.
  • Interesting architecture of an Henry VIII Castle on the sea side It looks like a Tudor rose with 2 rows of 6 petals. You can visit all stages and it is a kind of maze. Boots are kindly provided to visit underground that may be wet , as well as wooden guns to make the visit more realistic :-) Deal has many good restaurants on the seaside and is a good place to stay for diner.
  • Historic Tudor Castle maintained by English Heritage. Great views out to the English Channel. Well worth a visit.
  • It's a great castle. It looks really castle like with all the ramparts and everything. Lots of circles all stuck together. Has some fine looking cannons that the kids loved to climb on.
  • Not very nice when it's 4.26pm and the staff don't let you in because "we're closed..." (Official website says last admissions are at 4.30pm on Sundays) Nonetheless, here are some nice pretty pictures of the castle outside!
