King of the Castle 3

The interior of Dover Castle is quite impressive, including the banqueting room above. As a bonus, the church in the castle grounds is also well worth a second look. The church’s name is St Mary in Castro, but is often just called “the Saxon church” since it dates to Saxon times. Amazingly, the separate tower on the right in the photo below is a Roman lighthouse, which was later recycled as a bell tower.
