Dover Castle - The Underground Hospital is basically a hospital ward which was in operation in 1941 to treat the soldiers of war. It was the military hospital and command center during World War II and today when you visit this place, you can experience the trauma people might have gone through during those times when they were treated here. You will get beautiful views from the grounds of Dover Castle - The Underground Hospital and the place is suitable for having picnics.

Excellent. A must visit. Well explained. Interesting old objects. Atmospheric
Very disappointing. Rushed through the tunnels by our guide stopping only to listen to corny audio tracks that seem to have been produced by someone who has very little knowledge of how soldiers actually talk and no knowledge of medical procedures (FYI "giving oxygen" to a patient who's blood pressure is dropping rapidly is going to do very little to help the patient survive. Seriously who wrote the script?). Very little information provided about the tunnels themselves.
Fantastic day out with the family and was well worth the visit
A nice story is told about a pilot. Going a bit back in time and see how the hospital handled the gunshot wound.
Fantastic Tour !!
