We enjoyed our trip around the castle and got a taste of what life was like in the tunnels beneath during the second world war. The audio visual scenarios are extremely interesting and should not be missed. Easily spent a day there.

In my opinion this Castle is the best castle in the United Kingdom there's so much to do, so much to see, and never enough hours in the day to see it all. it's an amazing place and is a must visit for anybody who visits Dover.

Visited here for the second time today as last time we came we couldn’t fit everything in! There’s so many varied things to do, for all ages and interests. The kids loved going underground into the wartime tunnels and hospital today.

The situation of the castle is lovely, overlooking the channel with the ferries coming and going to and from France adds lots of interest, made even better by the sun shining today.

It’s expensive to get in for one visit so I’d seriously think about becoming English Heritage members to enable lots of visits to English Heritage properties across the country.

Had a great day at the Medieval day at Dover on a very rainy Good Friday. There were a few events called off because of the weather, but we managed to see the minstrels in the castle, playing songs, and a battle scene outside. Also tried my hand at the archery, the instructors were very nice to the children that were trying out (and the big kids like me) :)
Did the Underground Hospital tour, guide was brilliant, very informative, made it very interesting think her name was Kristen?
Didn't do Operation Dynamo this time, as we had done previously and we have membership so will be coming back again soon.
Food was really good, bit pricey, but kind of expected at this kind of attraction. Good choice, I had roast gammon with Yorkshires.
Overall great day out, will come back when its sunny!
