Pack your suitcase for a hair-raising and luxurious stay in Dover Castle’s former prison tower.
Are you afraid of ghosts? Maybe not, but you may find yourself a little chilled after a night in Dover Castle’s old prison tower. Its 13th century, Norman stone walls have many secrets but your stay sees luxury furnishings and modern comforts become the décor for your bedroom.
After closing time, explore Dover’s Castle’s centuries old grounds after dark; its heavy wooden doors, a solid reminder of a proud past in guarding England’s shores from invasion for 200 years.
Nestled in the cosy bed linen, dream of ages past, when Henry VII was in his medieval pomp in the richly-furnished Great Tower. Imagine working day and night deep inside the castle’s top secret tunnels in a desperate bid to rescue the troops stranded at Dunkirk as German forces closed in.
And watch out for the ghostly spectre of the woman and dog said to be buried within the prison walls.
