High above Dover on the cliffs lies the castle of Dover. There has been a castle on this place for more then 2000 years.

Since there is a lot to see I cut this tip into parts. I do want to show some pics of course. And that white stuff in the pictures is actually snow! It snowed like mad when Natalie and me went to the castle.

First we went to see the secret wartime tunnels. Too bad it wasn't allowed to take pictures in there. The tunnels are amazing. There is a lot happening beneath the earth that you don't see. The videos shown make you understand more what happend in wartime.
And love it or hate it, inside the tunnels they have put up a sound recording. So when stepping in the kitchen your hear pans and people talking, when going into the emergency room you hear that too etc. I liked it but I can imagine some people won't.

Directions: On the cliffs. It is signposted. There is a carpark near the entrance so need to climb all the way up.
