Dover Castle is a medieval castle that is supposedly the largest castle in England. It is so large that we can opt to take a small train to get around the castle grounds. There’s plenty to see and do within the castle grounds. We explored two underground sites (underground WWII hospital and underground medieval tunnel), the main castle tower and the Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment Museum.
Because it was half term break, there was an activity for young visitors. Actors playing King Henry II and his children – Matilda, Richard, John – brought the young visitors on a spy chase around the castle’s main tower and enlisted the young visitors’ help to figure out who was leaking the English King’s secrets to the French King. The actors were all loud and funny, and it was such an interesting way to learn about English history through the activity.
