  • Such a pirceful and tranquil place. I Lovett up there. You can watch the ships sail past and one clear day there is good visibility of Northern France. most of the construction was dates back to mid 1800's.A very interesting place.
  • Great place, shame that only a small part of it is open but they've done a great job at opening it to public! Forget Dover Castle, here's the Heights!
  • The place where the beauty of nature is in harmony with military history and mystery concerning secret tunnels and galleries. I did not know what concern Napoleon's expansive policy produced in England until I visited The Grand Shaft and the underground tunnels who lead to Western Heights with luxuriant vegetation and those black wild caws with short legs. And what a breathe tacking view from the top of the heights towards the sea and the coast of France .
  • Great history there, nice quiet place to chill and reflect. Ideal for fire flying my Drone up there.....
  • Great views to take great photos

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.
