More Information about Dover Castle

Once you choose your arrival slot, you’ll receive your booking confirmation by email. Just bring this with you on the day you visit, either on your mobile device or as a print out. The email will contain a barcode that our team will scan when you arrive.

The time shown is the earliest you can arrive, and you can arrive at any point within an hour of that time. You're then welcome to stay for as long as you like.

Last admission is 30 minutes before the site closes.

Without a valid booking confirmation, we won’t be able to let you in. If you're a Member, remember to bring your English Heritage Membership Card. Please see our Reopening FAQs for more information.
