Enjoy great family days out in the South East with a visit to Dover Castle! Spectacularly situated above the White Cliffs on the Kent coastline this magnificent castle boasts a fascinating history that will intrigue school age and over, but is atmospheric and knightly enough to get the smalls' imaginations going too.

Then (if you've got hardy types) re-live the turbulent war years as you venture underground into the Secret Wartime Tunnels, set deep within the cliffs, including the vivid recreation of the Dunkirk evacuation in Operation Dynamo. This is an immersive and affecting exhibit that may not go down well with sensitive types. Equally the Underground Hospital is very atmospheric and has potentially upsetting sound and smell effects, so you may want to check out their online virtual tour and see what you think first! Take them instead to the Great tower where either costumed real life or hologram characters are waiting to greet you: cool!

Finish off your day with a walk round the extensive battlements, the Medieval Tunnels and Roman Lighthouse as well as the grounds, where kites and traditional play are welcomed! All in all a great day out with the kids and with penny of Dover's other delights not too far off should you wish to extend things. Handy!
