Discover 2000 years of fascinating history and an amazing day out for the whole family.
Dover Castle is an Attraction.
Rising above the famous White Cliffs high above the Channel, this mighty fortress has been the site of royal intrigue and epic sieges and was at the centre of the crucial effort to evacuate hundreds of thousands of Allied troops from the beach of Dunkirk during World War II.
Step inside the Great Tower, constructed in the 1180s, and immerse yourself in the royal court of King Henry II. Experience the vibrant colour and opulence of one of medieval England's most important castles as you're transported to a world of courtly intrigue and royal ambition.
For over 200 years the tunnels have provided shelter, safety and secrecy to those defending our shores. Delve deeper into the history of the tunnels, from Napoleonic times to the Cold War in this exhibition. Tours of the different levels within the Secret Wartime Tunnels last approximately 30 minutes each, plus a recommended 30 minutes in the Wartime Tunnels exhibition.
Experience the drama of the Dunkirk evacuation in the very tunnels where the desperate rescue operation was masterminded. State-of-the-art effects and real film footage combine to bring those dramatic events of May 1940 to life.
Travel deep into the white cliffs to explore the atmospheric Underground Hospital. Converted into a hospital for injured troops in 1941, visitors today can experience the sounds, smells and atmosphere of the World War II hospital with its operating theatre.
