Back to What’s to See & Do Page

Walmer Castle - Absolutely beautiful official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. Past residents include William Pitt the Younger, Sir Winston Churchill, The Iron Duke the Duke of Wellington and, until her death in 2002, The Queen Mother. A successor will be appointed by Her Majesty the Queen and is expected to be installed, with full pageantry, at a special meeting of the Grand Court of Shepway, to be held in Dover. Centuries of domestic refinements have transformed the Tudor Fortress into an elegant stately home with beautiful gardens. Hear fascinating stories on the history of the castle and past residents with a free audio in several languages.
