Start the morning at Dover Castle at 10am. See the new First
World War zone based around the Port War Signal Station and
Fire Command Post. Explore the new interpretation of this rare
example of Britain’s military home front, looking out over the
harbour and the English Channel. Then take a tour inside the
impressive Great Tower and the Medieval Tunnels where
England was defended against French invasion in the
Great Siege of 1216.
Depart at 12.15pm for the 45-minute drive through the beautiful
Kent countryside to New Romney. At 1.15pm lunch will be taken
in the Heywood Buffet at the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway.
After lunch and a hot beverage, join our resident Historian to learn
about the extraordinary role of the Railway in WWII and about the
construction of PLUTO (Pipe Line Under the Ocean).
See the replica Armoured Train before taking your seats in your
allocated carriages for a nostalgic return journey across the
Romney Marsh, hauled by a world-famous miniature steam
locomotive. (Train departure times will depend on the timetable
in operation but our sales team will be happy to advise you
of the options.)
