If you are looking for a full day for all the family look no further than Dover Castle. Discover its labyrinth of secret wartime tunnels built deep in the White Cliffs of Dover. Sights, sounds and pathe news clips bring the drama of its strategic role in wwii alive. Walk through the rooms where Sir Admiral Ramsay planned the “miracle of Dunkirk” and tour the underground hospital as you follow the story of a wounded wartime pilot. Above ground, check out one of Europe’s best-preserved Roman lighthouses, visit the siege Experience of 1216 and find out what it may have been like to be a medieval soldier under siege and explore the towering keep with its spectacular views across the channel and its recreation of King Henry viii’s. With so much to see and do for the whole family and great events throughout the summer it is not surprising that it is one of Kent’s most popular visitor attractions.
