The Medieval Dover Castle, which is the largest Castle in England, was founded around 1160 by King Henry II, and is famously known as ‘the key to England’. The castle was designed by Henry II’s architect ‘Maurice the Engineer’ and was built between 1180 and 1185. Henry II would welcome noble pilgrims travelling to the new shrine in Canterbury Cathedral of St Thomas Becket.

The Castle was a symbol of kingly power and authority guarding the gateway to the realm. It has been continuously garrisoned right up until 1958, protecting Britain from invasion from the shortest sea crossing from Europe.

Dover Castle is a great medieval fortress with the Great Tower at its heart. The Tower is 83 feet high, just less than 100 feet square and the walls are up to 21 feet thick. From 1740 until 1945 its defences were successively updated in response to every European war involving Britain.

The Castle hosted many royal visits by Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria.

During the Napoleonic Wars Dover became a garrison town and there was a need to build barracks which were built in tunnels about 15 meters below the cliffs top. The tunnels become abandoned for more than a century until the outbreak of the Second World War when they were converted into an air-raid shelter and later into a military command centre and underground hospital.
