Dover Castle


Dover Castle embodies within itself a rich heritage of over 2000 years. The castle is situated on white Cliff and is also referred to as the 'Key of England' owing to its defensive significance. Its unusual earthworks patterns do not seem to be befitting to the norms of construction technique of the Medieval Castle.

Its tunnels were initially converted into air-raid shelters during the World War II, and then into military command centre followed by becoming an underground hospital. The castle, its secret tunnels, as well as surrounding land is now administered by the English Heritage. Dover's Castle has been used for several films inclusive of Hamlet, The Wind in the Willows amidst others.
