Prices and Opening times for Dover Castle

Advance Booking

You now need to book timed-tickets in advance to visit Dover Castle. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.

You can only book for visits until 21 June. Tickets for visits after this date will go on sale as soon as we have more details of our opening arrangements. We’ll update this page when we have more information to share.

We’ve reduced the admission price for Dover Castle while interior spaces are closed. This price is valid until we re-open all our historic interiors, including the Secret Wartime Tunnels. Please click on the book your visit button below to see prices during this time. Please note that have-a-go archery is not included in this price but is an additional on site charge.
