“Deal Castle for castle fans”

Written on: 25/05/2011

As a castle nut, we recently went to Deal castle in the town of Deal near Dover (in Kent).

The pictures of Deal show it to be a unique design (unique to the device forts that is) and it is very interesting. When first arriving I was surprised at how much smaller the castle was compared to the impression I had from the pictures online. However it seems much bigger once you are inside and exploring as you go right inside the lower chambers. The castle is barren inside (in that it's mostly just empty rooms) but it's still an interesting place because of the unique clover design. It's also in excellent condition and if you go on a sunny day, beautiful to walk around the upper bastions.

At a fiver for entry (free for English Heritage members), and combined with a trip to Walmer Castle down the road, this is a great day out if you live within reasonable distance. I wouldn't recommend you travel for hours though as there's probably better castles closer to you.
