About Deal Castle.

Let your students explore one of Henry VIII’s finest artillery castles and find out what life was like for the people who lived and worked at Deal Castle.

Built by the order of King Henry VIII it is one of the finest Tudor artillery castles in England. It’s also among the earliest and most elaborate of a chain of coastal forts, which also includes Calshot, Camber, Walmer and Pendennis Castles.
