A contribution from the sale of this product helps us to secure this spectacular and unique heritage for future generations to enjoy.
Dover Castle's location, commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the Continent, has given it immense strategic importance. The chalk of Castle Hill has been shaped and reshaped over the centuries into massive earthworks, ditches and mounds. Imposing walls and towers have been raised and networks of tunnels built beneath them. Henry II began the building of the present castle in the 1180s and over the next 800 years its building and defences were adapted to meet the changing demands of weapons and warfare.
This guidebook, packed with historic images, reconstructions and plans, provides a full tour of this iconic castle and relates its long and eventful history.
