These tunnels certain bring history alive and transport you back to the time when they were used to defend the country. Fascinating and well worth a visit.

“Interesting, but it could be so much more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Given the wait in line just to get on the tour, I was expecting so much more. The tour itself comes across rather cheap and could be so much more exciting and entertaining. The guide was knowledgeable on her speeches during the tour which helped some.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Worth the short wait to really see this remarkable place. It isn't close quarters, but it is underground and may be hard for the claustrophobic.

“Can I go again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you only do 1 thing at Dover castle go into the tunnels! It's worth it just for the video presentation. Very quickly got me immersed into operation Dynamo. I thought it was very cleverly done and everybody around me seemed impressed too.
