This Queen's Regiment and PWRR Museum is situated within Dover Castle. I found the museum extremely interesting and was very informative in the history of the Queen's Regiment and PWRR. All in all it's a must visit when you're at the Castle.

Small but very interesting museum within the grounds of Dover Castle. Gives a very good impression of a soldier's life, particularly the hardships and dangers.

Military museums can be very dry, full of items of historic importance to members of the regiment, but not of huge interest to other visitors. This museum, set in Dover Castle, was a pleasant surprise; it breaks the mould and sets the standard for others...More
