  The castle at night, truly a fantastic sight
by chrishc

Dover Castle, visible from nearly everywhere in Dover (except the railway station), looks out across the English Channel with a superb view on a clear day.

There is 2000 years of history in the place. The keep is medieval and gives an impression of the times of King Henry VIII, it is very interesting to look round.

There are secret war tunnels (not that secret, there are lots of signposts showing where they are) which you can visit and get a taste of second world war life.

There are also plenty of places to picnic in the grounds and some open areas which kids will love.

A magical place with interest through the ages.

Cost is GBP8 for adults. Family ticket GBP20.

Well worth the admission fee.

Address: Dover, can't miss it
Directions: Stand anywhere and look up, it is overlooking the harbour
