Although some of the displays are a bit random, I enjoyed the one on smugglers amongst others. The views from the terrace over Romney Marsh are excellent. The volunteer on duty at the ticket desk was very helpful.

Small enough for little kids but big enough for older folk. This is a wonderful small fortification with hands on activities for children and a ghoulish skeleton hanging in a metal frame - a copy of punishments past!

Loved this little museum that was worth every penny. Educational and authentic, though small it managed to fit in a lot of interesting local information. The little garden was lovely and the view at the top was great.

The Tower museum had excellent facilities, with a video explaining how it housed the original womens dungeon. Downstairs in the tower, you could lift up original weaponry (sword, axe & hammer) and feel how heavy they are.

Enjoyed chatting with the guide who shared my affinity for Captain Pugwash :) The Tower is small but well worth a visit
