£21.00 English Heritage
Dominating the skyline on the famous White Cliffs, Dover Castle and the labyrinth of tunnels beneath it provide a fascinating day out. Dover Castle proudly stands in 100 acres of ground that is steeped in 2000 years of history, from the Iron Age to the Nuclear Age. The mighty keep and bailey, built by Henry II, are the finest of their kind, while the panoramic views out across the English Channel from the lookout are astonishing. There are many discoveries to be made in the Castle and also included is a tour deep underground into the maze of Secret Wartime Tunnels. It was from here in 1940 that Vice Admiral Ramsay and Sir Winston Churchill masterminded the evacuation from Dunkirk. You will visit the telecommunications room, underground hospital and anti-aircraft room, and enjoy audio-visual effects, film clips, sounds and smells of Britain at War.
Due to the nature of the building this trip is unsuitable for people with mobility issues.
