Dover Castle, Dover
Perched on the edge of the equally renowned Cliffs of Dover, Dover Castle awes with its sheer size, imposing architecture, and historical significance. This 12th-century construction is the largest castle in England and towers over the modern town of Dover as well as the site of what is believed to be a former Saxon town. A network of tunnels, thought to have been constructed during the Napoleonic Wars, exists under the castle. A visit to Dover Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dover tour itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
Dover Castle Reviews
敷地がとにかく広く、見どころが沢山あるスポットでした。入場料は高く感じる人もいるかもしれませんが、十分に元がとれると思います。２，３時間では回りきれないほど魅力的な展示が多かったです。第二次世界大戦時に英海軍の司令部にもなっており、ダイナモ作戦の司令部にもなった地下トンネルのツアーも素晴らしいです。城からの眺めもよく、ドーバー海峡や港、市街地を一望できます。 more »The location of the hotel was great. Some people may feel the admission fee is high, but I think that I can take the original enough. In a few hours, there were so many attractive exhibits. At the time of World War II, the command of the Royal Navy was also a wonderful tour of the underground tunnels that became the headquarters of the Dynamo operation. The view from the castle is also good, overlooking the Strait of Dover, the harbour and the city centre.
I never realised that such a well kept, large, interesting historic place existed so close to where we will. more »
A brisk trek up the hill delivers a beautiful complex of centuries old fortifications. We were fortunate enough to have an afternoon of historical reenactments of jousts, games, and craftsmanship. Take the time to explore all of the nooks and crannies of castle on the way up to taking in the spectacular view of all of Dover.
One of the most excellent places I've visited in years. So well presented, exceptionally polite staff. Just a wonderful experience. I have to return and spend 6 hours more exploding.
