Dover was a great castle to visit. With great views of the English Channel and a history that will appeal to all.
Dover is a giant among castles. It has the longest recorded history of any major castle in Britain. Indeed Dover Castle began before history itself, its earliest rampart defences date back to the prehistoric Iron Age. Then the Romans built a pharos (lighthouse) here in the first century AD.
For 2000 years Dover has played host to military fortifications, from Iron Age earthworks to William the Conqueror's wooden castle to Cold War bunkers.High winds force Dover Castle to close as extreme gusts batter Kent - Kent Live
