Forever Active Day Trip - DOVER CASTLE

On this day trip we arrive at Dover Castle at around 10.30am. You have free time to explore the large site which is Dover Castle.
Commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the continent, Dover Castle has a long and immensely eventful history. Known as the ‘key to England’, this great fortress has played a crucial role in the defence of the realm for over nine centuries, a span equalled only by the Tower of London and Windsor Castle.
You will have plenty of time to explore the various attractions; here are just a few of them:
The Great Tower - This is the centre of the castle, with six main rooms to explore including Henry II's own private chamber. A spiral staircase will take you to the roof top to admire the fantastic view.
The Wartime Tunnels - The Operation Dynamo exhibition in the Secret Tunnels brings the sights and sounds of World War II to life. Delve deep into Dover's white cliffs and enjoy special effects, projections and dramatic film.
The Underground Hospital -  Follow the dramatic journey of a wounded WWII pilot, fighting for his life as he is rushed through to the operating theatre. See the living conditions in the tunnels and hear about the difficulties of treating injuries in such close proximity to falling enemy bombs.
To make the most of your visit, we suggest on arrival you prioritise which tours and sites you want to go on. We will depart for home at about 4.30pm.
