Dover Castle (EH) 20-04-2012
For a great family day out in Kent visit Dover Castle, open all year round. Immerse yourself in our dramatic new visitor experience, Operation Dynamo: Rescue from Dunkirk, open now to visitors.
Spectacularly situated above the White Cliffs of Dover this magnificent castle has guarded our shores from invasion for 20 centuries - now you can enjoy a great family day out with a visit to the 'Key to England'.
Explore the darkly atmospheric Secret Wartime Tunnels now with a vivid recreation of the Dunkirk evacuation, complete with dramatic projections of swooping Spitfires and real film footage. Watch Heart FM's breakfast team James & Charlie as they experience Operation Dynamo.
Enjoy a colourful contrast with the richly-furnished Great Tower, where costumed actors introduce medieval life at King Henry II's court.
With exciting exhibitions, winding tunnels to explore, ghosts to hunt out - and of course restaurants, shops and the space for youngsters to run around - an action-packed, great value day out awaits!
