Explore this coastal castle and it's fascinating history, along with it's beautiful eight acres of award winning gardens that surround the castle. Walmer Castle was once a Tudor artillery fortress that became a stately-home for the Lords Warden of the Cinque Ports, including the Iron Duke of Wellington.
The gardens host a glorious mix of formal and informal styles. Admire the herbaceous borders, colourful planting and impressive cloud hedge in the striking Broadwalk or relax in the tranquil setting of the Queen Mother’s garden. See the kitchen garden bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables then stroll through the wild flower meadows and shady woodland walk to the recently-restored sunken glen. With a mix of colourful displays and cool shaded spots, the gardens at Walmer Castle provide the perfect setting for a day out in the fresh air.
