  • Firstly, the first floor was closed (for conservation work, apparently) when I visited the castle - but I wasn't told this until AFTER I had paid the entrance fee. That left me to walk around empty ro...  more »
  • Very historic castle but not worth the money. Looked amazing from the beach so decided to pop in after reading other reviews. As there was construction going on I didn't expect to see much but 75% of rooms were closed off. As it was a small castle it took 15 minutes for the whole experience. Not much to see inside (literally empty rooms), should be called Deal's Forts instead. Even if there was no constructions, you could still view this castle all under 15 minutes, not worth time or money.
  • Small and compact, but still good for an hour of exploration. Once the renovation has been completed, there will be more things to keep visitors busy. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
  • Its a good attraction but probably only worthit if you have a heritage site membership.
  • A fascinating look at important parts of British heritage and history. Plus a tasty cafe.
  • Good for a small look around, don't expect to spend your whole day there though. :)
