Walmer Castle Garden
Walmer Castle is an artillery fort originally constructed by Henry VIII in Walmer, Kent, between 1539 and 1540. It formed part of the King's Device programme to protect against invasion from France and the Holy Roman Empire, and defended the strategically important Downs anchorage off the English coast. It 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, the exhibits and collection bring to life Wellington’s career, and the story of his life and death. Outside, there are 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.
