Dover Castle is a medieval castle, founded in the 12th century and widely known as the 'lock and key to England' due to it's defensive significance and key roles and many wars and battles! From the 12th century until 1958 the Castle was continuously garrisoned, covering 9 centuries, something only equalled by the Tower of London and Windsor Castle. Over the centuries the Castle defences were continuously improved and enlarged as the Castle maintained a military role, a role perhaps made most famous in World War 2 where the Castle housed an underground hospital and a command centre for the Dunkirk evacuation. The castle is the largest and one of the oldest in England - don't forget to reserve at the time of booking your entry tickets online to avoid the main queues!
Ensure you have pre-labelled your luggage with the labels found in your cruise pack. On arrival at  Dover Cruise terminal you will simply walk to check- in to begin your cruise. Many of our coaches do have bathrooms, but if not the driver will be happy to arrange a 15/20 minute comfort stop en route to Dover if required.
