Perched on the edge of the equally renowned Cliffs of Dover, Dover Castle awes with its sheer size, imposing architecture, and historical significance. This 12th-century construction is the largest castle in England and towers over the modern town of Dover as well as the site of what is believed to be a former Saxon town. A network of tunnels, thought to have been constructed during the Napoleonic Wars, exists under the castle.

  • Great place to visit. Something for all the family. Well worth joining English Heritage as there are numerous other places of interest in Kent where you can use your card. 
  • As a member of the English Heritage we are always not surprised of the well presented details of visiting such wonders of England. The staff and volunteers are top notch when it comes to their profess...  read more »

  • Great!!! Super cool castle, but not only the castle. Also all the ghost sightings and WW2 secret tunnels. Interested for age 10 and up, price £12.50 I think for a child. And little bit more pricey for an adult.
  • This must be one of the best days out in the UK. Really innovative and modern exhibits by English heritage, there is so much to see and do. This place is very child friendly. Highlights are the tower, made up to be like when Henry II lived here and the unforgettable operation dynamo experience.
  • very good day out, plenty to do, but alot outside so avoid wet days. The tunnel experiance has now been split into 2 different areas, so you might have to queue for both. whereas you used to be able to prebook a time slot.
  • if there was ------- star i would rate now!!!! i was sigh up for english heritage for a year, but it continued till today, on the day i did explain to the staff its only for a year and if i want i will call and do it by myself, but noticed the money is taken, ring up for how it happened? it was set up direct debit. i paid the membership for 2 for a year. such a missleading to visitor. That was my 4th time but now will not visit again.
  • Enjoyed visit, quite a large area with a lot to see. Small car park so get there early. Beautiful chapel in the tower and stunning views along coast and across to France. Allow plenty of time to give you time to visit the tunnels (WW1) exhibition as well.
