Perched high above the White Cliffs the castle is the "Key of England" and has 2,000 years of history within its walls. Explore the secret wartime tunnels with a vivid recreation of the Dunkirk evacuation. In contrast visit the richly furnished Greta Tower where costumed actors introduce medieval life at King Henty's court..
Built on a high cliff, in a strategic position facing threats from Europe, Dover castle has always been an important part of Britain's line of defence. The castle, with its maze of tunnels dug into the cliff, has seen almost continuous action from the iron age to the second world war. (English Heritage).
