Hotels near the Dover Castle
Dover Castle is steeped in history - there's a Roman lighthouse, Norman keep and Saxon church on the site. Visit the very rooms where the Dunkirk escape was masterminded or tour the secret tunnels that served as a war hospital.
One of England's most historic and impressive castles, Dover Castle has played a crucial role in the defence of the country since King Henry II expanded it in the 12th and 13th centuries.
Recently renovated, the castle continues to attract history fans with its well-preserved interiors and immediate connection to turbulent eras in England's past, while the castle's Great Tower has been remodelled to create an immersive, opulent replica of Henry II's royal court.
