The fantastic fortress of Dover Castle has played a vital role in the defence of England for over nine centuries. From the Roman-built lighthouse to a network of tunnels used in the Cold War, the history of Dover Castle and its significance in key events is a truly wonderful learning experience.
Schools can enjoy a free visit to the castle, where teachers can lead the day out and tailor the excursion to their curriculum. By booking the Education room, pupils can dress up in medieval costumes and build a foam castle to learn about attack and defence. Teachers can prepare pupils for the trip, or continue to explore the topics in the classroom by using the free resources available. If teachers want to learn from an expert, it is possible to book an expert-led session and enjoy an interactive tour of the castle.
