Perched on the edge of the equally renowned Cliffs of Dover, Dover Castle awes with its sheer size, imposing architecture, and historical significance. This 12th-century construction is the largest castle in England and towers over the modern town of Dover as well as the site of what is believed to be a former Saxon town. A network of tunnels, thought to have been constructed during the Napoleonic Wars, exists under the castle. A visit to Dover Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dover tour itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

Dive into history and the gorgeous sites here in Dover. There is ample parking and walkways that are nice if you are pushing a pram. My "big kid" really enjoyed the tunnel tour while my 9 & 16yr old enjoyed exploring the medieval castle and grounds. We spent easily 2.5hrs but could have spent longer here. If you are an English Heritage member, there is also a cottage on the castle grounds that you can rent. Prices are on the website.
An amazing piece of English history. The size of the grounds are huge and you will need a day to venture around. The castle itself is in immaculate condition and the view from the top is amazing. The war tunnels (Project Dynamo and the Underground Hospital) are fantastic and are a must see
