Had a really good day out at Dover Castle, lots to see, fabulous views and very interesting. The underground tunnels were amazing as was the castle itself. An English Heritage site and worth joining it as the value is excellent.
However, lots of steps to get the best view from the top of the tower.

What a showstopper, a must see for everybody who arrives by Ferry/ Cruise liner or Car.
The great Tower is the best example of Norman Building and the Interior is fantastic.
Takes your breath away.
Because it is quite expensive as a family, it's worth wile to take out English Heritage Membership for a year while you visit.

Easy to find and a lot of car parking areas.
The castle is well maintained with quite a few interesting attractions including the secret tunnels and underground hospital. These two tours a guided and very well done.
A good day's visit.

We enjoyed visiting the castle and the wartime tunnels. I loved the exhibits in the Great Tower and we had a lovely time walking the grounds. There also wonderful views from the top of the tower.

We enjoyed our trip Dover Castle and its tunnels. Great exhibit about the Dunkirk rescue. Tours happened fairly regularly so the wait was never long between groups.
