Dover Castle is a medieval castle in Dover, Kent,England. It was founded in the 11th century and has been described as the "Key to England" due to its defensive significance throughout history. It is the largest castle in England.
Commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the continent, Dover Castle has played a crucial role in the defence of the realm for over nine centuries, giving it a long and immensely eventful history. Many centuries before King Henry II began the great stone castle here in the 1180s, its spectacular site above the famous white cliffs may well have been the site of an Iron Age hill fort.
A lighthouse was built by the Romans in AD43 and was restored by Sir George Gilbert Scott and William Butterfield in the late 19th Century. After his victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, William the Conqueror built an earthwork and timber stockade castle here and from then on, Dover Castle was continuously garrisoned until 1958 after Henry II completely remodelled the castle in 1180's as a palace to impress distinguished visitors.
Building work continued in the first half of the 13th century under King John and Henry III, who completed the successive rings of defensive walls surrounding the great tower. Long sieges tested the defences of Dover Castle in 1216 - 17. Three new gatehouses were added after this siege and are still highly visible to this day.
During the Second World War, Dover Castle housed the command centre that controlled naval operation in the channel using the Napoleonic tunnels which had been brought back into service. Admiral Bertram Ramsay organised the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk from this very place. Further use as a hospital and command centre in preparation for the 1944 invasion of Europe these tunnels played a highly important role, even being used as a secret location during the Cold War.
