Built by the order of King Henry VIII, Deal Castle is one of the finest Tudor artillery castles in England, and a must see on your visit to the quirky seaside town of Deal. Explore the castle from the storerooms and tunnels below up to the circular rooms above. An exhibition reveals how Henry’s fears for the safety and security of his realm shaped the country’s defences and his own married life. With displays, children’s activities and fascinating artefacts, the whole family can enjoy the rich and varied history of the castle alongside stories of the people who lived and worked there. If you enjoy cycling, a pleasant cycle path also links Deal and Walmer Castles along the beachfront.
You don’t need to book your ticket in advance, but you will always get the best price and guaranteed entry by booking online ahead of your visit. If you are a Member and wish to book, your ticket is still free. Your booking is for the site/event only and does not guarantee a car parking space, which may carry an additional charge.
As the grounds of the castle are enclosed spaces, wearing a face covering is encouraged, but not mandatory.
