    Known as ‘The key to England’, the great fortress of Dover Castle has played a crucial role in the defence of the island for over nine centuries. Commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the continent.

    Venture below ground with a tour of the eerie medieval underground works and see how the tunnels were adapted by engineers during the Napoleonic war in preparation for French invasion. These tunnels also had a secret use during the second world war as an operations’ nerve centre and include a hospital.
