Overview

Deal Castle was one of a chain of coastal artillery forts built by Henry VIII to protect England against the threat of invasion by Spain and France. Along with Walmer and Sandown Castles, it was designed to defend an important anchorage off the Kent coast known as 'the Downs'. Its flower-like shape, with cylindrical bastions, gave it a very wide field of fire.

The castle has played an active role in history. Anne of Cleves visited Deal on her way to marry Henry VIII, the castle was besieged during the Civil War and it played a part in the Napoleonic Wars at the end of the 18th century.

This guidebook provides a tour and history of the castle, from Tudor times to the present day.
