For over nine centuries, Dover Castle has commanded the gateway to the realm from its famous location on the white cliffs overlooking the English Channel.
The fortress has played a pivotal part in English history, from the time when King Henry II built his magnificent and colourful palace, to its vital role in the two world wars.
Tickets include access to Operation Dynamo Tunnel Tours: Escape from Dunkirk – take in the visitor experience in the Secret Wartime Tunnels. Running deep beneath the famous White Cliffs, they housed the nerve-centre of operations for Winston Churchill and Vice Admiral Ramsay as they masterminded the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk in 1940. After the tour you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of the authentic underground hospital to see where the casualties of war were treated.
Other highlights of the castle include the Roman lighthouse; Anglo-Saxon church of St-Mary-in-Castro; Battlement Walks; the Medieval Underground Works and The Great Tower.
Tickets £42 inc. coach
