After that, it was off to see the Dover Castle and the Secret Wartime Tunnels. The castle and the tunnels are unique in that are up-kept as if people were still using them. For example, the trip through the tunnels was complete with an "expected air raid." The lights flickered and even went off for a few seconds...all while we were in a tunnel deep underground! During part of the tour we visited the operating room, complete with manufactured disinfectant smells. We weren't allowed to take photos during this tour.
The castle itself was gorgeous. We climbed to the tower, which consisted of way too many steps! My legs were shaking the rest of the entire day! It was worth it though, as we could not only see the castle grounds, but over the White Cliffs of Dover to the English Channel and even the distant coastline of France!
I got in late last night and now have a lot of reading to do this week!
Do you prefer large cities or small towns?
