Castles

Dover Castle Fortifications set in the spectacular White Cliffs of Dover have been overlooking the channel for twenty centuries. The present medieval castle has stood since 1185 and is rich in history. Recently Dover Castle has opened up its secret wartime tunnels, along with an eerie recreation of the evacuation of Dunkirk.

Walmer Castle and Gardens Built during the reign of King Henry VIII, Walmer Castle is one of the most fascinating visitor attractions in the South East. Originally designed as part of a chain of coastal artillery defences it evolved into the official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. You can spend time exploring both the castle and its gardens.

Deal Castle Built by the order of King Henry VIII it is one of the finest Tudor artillery castles in England, and among the earliest and most elaborate of a chain of coastal forts, which also includes Calshot, Camber, Walmer and Pendennis Castles. You can explore the whole of the castle.

Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle dates back to 1119 when it was built to replace an earlier Saxon manor. Nowadays it is a popular tourist attraction, with an aviary, a maze, a grotto, a golf course, and perhaps the world?s only museum of dog collars.

Western Heights, Drop Redoubt and Grand Shaft

The Western Heights were built in 1779 to augment the fortifications offered by the outdated Medieval castle. It started life as extensive earthwork batteries and grew into two massive forts, miles of dry ditches and a hospital and a barracks. They remained in use until after the Second World War. Much of the complex was destroyed but the two forts and the ditches, and the Grand Shaft staircase were restored and opened to the public.
