Dover Castle Wartime Tunnels

Just visited the Wartime Tunnels at Dover Castle. Operation Dynamo (the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk) was masterminded and organised from here by Admiral Ramsey in May 1940.

New sections of tunnel have been made available for public access and consequently they are proving very popular this weekend. The queue to get in was a sight to behold in itself. Once inside the tour lasts about 45 minutes.

The tour of the tunnels has changed since I was last here a couple of years ago. Its now a multimedia exhibition focused on the Dynamo operation. The presentation is excellent with plenty of background information to help put the events in context.


  1. Unfortunately photography was not allowed in the tunnels but I did get a load of pictures elsewhere in the castle grounds. In particular I got a load in the regimental museum of the Prince of Wales Regiment. I've started sorting through these and will post them as soon as I get a chance.

  2. Ok, I was wondering where the pictures where? LOL


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel Miniature Adventures TV
