Things to see and do
What you need to know
We've made some changes to help keep you safe, and things might be a little different when you visit. Here's everything you need to know.
Explore the Battlements
Explore the castle walls and moat, and enjoy the spectacular seaside view across Deal beach. Enjoy the fresh sea air, and admire the architecture of this mighty Tudor artillery fortress.
Walk the Rounds
Head down to the passageways beneath the keep designed to defend Deal Castle from attack. Kids can grab a pair of wellies and a wooden musket to play with as they explore.
Discover the Castle's History
Displays and exhibits uncover the history of Deal Castle, and the role it played in defending the coast. Hear the story of those who lived and worked at the castle, including the captains of Deal Castle.
Walk to Walmer Castle
If you have time why not take a walk or cycle along the seafront to Walmer Castle and Gardens? Like Deal, it was built by order of Henry VIII and is one of a chain of 'Device' coastal forts built locally, including Camber, Sandgate and Sandown.
