Dover Castle

At 18:57 hours on 26 May 1940, the signal was received to start Operation Dynamo - the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force and French troops from Dunkirk's beaches on the northern coast of France. The network of underground tunnels beneath Dover Castle became the nerve centre of the whole operation.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
