  • Such a peaceful and tranquil place. I Love it up there. You can watch the ships sail past and on a clear day there is good visibility of Northern France. most of the construction was dates back to mid 1800's.A very interesting place.
  • One of the hidden treasures of Dover and definitely the poor cousin of the Castle. However, if you get the chance to visit or volunteer then do so as it's a great place.
  • A bit of Napoleonic War history that few from outside East Kent know about. Amazing fortresses!!
  • Really good walk with plenty of historic information on signs around the place
  • Looking forward to meeting my knight in shining armour soon.

Where to stay in Dover

Boutique hotels and guesthouses are tucked among Victorian homes in the shadow of Dover Castle. Consider lodging next to the striking white cliffs of Dover with a view over the water. Cottages and inns farther inland give access to the surrounding countryside and offer comfortable accommodations at lower prices.
