Dover Castle

We started the week with a visit to Dover Castle.  It was built by Henry II and added to over the years.  Henry was very important in our story we learnt about Thomas Becket. We took a tour around the great tower and dressed up in the education centre.  We learnt how the castle could hold out against a siege.  We also went into the secret war-time tunnels and experienced 'operation dynamo' - you are not allowed to take photos of this!
