Originally a Tudor fortress, Walmer Castle evolved into a stately-home for the Lords Warden of the Cinque Ports, and became the residence of famous names from the Duke of Wellington to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Inside, our exhibits and collection bring to life Wellington’s career, and the story of his life and death. You can even see the original Wellington Boots.

Outside, discover 8 acres of award-winning gardens, including the breath-taking Broadwalk and the serene Queen Mothers Garden. Make sure to venture into the tranquil surroundings of the newly-opened Glen, a planted former chalk quarry accessible for the first time in over 100 years, and explore new interpretation and tactile displays telling the story of Walmer’s landscape as never before
