Dover Castle and Secret Wartime Tunnels Castles
Today, you can experience life as it was lived by the 700 personnel based here in the worst days of the World War II. Relive the drama as a wounded pilot is taken into the underground hospital to fight for his life and see the Command Centre that Churchill visited to see the plans that helped lead to Allied victory.
The White Cliffs are among England's most celebrated sights, yet hidden inside them is a fascinating and secret world. Deep underground lies an extensive network of tunnels first dug during the Napoleonic Wars, but so strategically useful that they continued to be used right through the 20th century.
An exciting presentation using the latest light, film and sound technology highlights the castle's key role when the country was threatened with invasion and retraces how, in 1216, a group of rebel barons invited the French Dauphin to invade and seize the throne from King John.
Today, visitors can enjoy the castle's wealth of history through a range of exciting exhibitions designed to take people back in time. Bringing history to life at the site are the reconstruction and exhibition of Henry VIII's visit in 1539; the 1216 siege experience; the Princess of Wales' Royal Regiment Museum and the Roman Pharos and Saxon church. You can also take one of the inclusive tours of the Secret Wartime Tunnels. .
