Honeymoon, England III - Dover Castle

And finally onto the castle itself.

The Palace Gate and the castle behind it.
The Great Hall

Even King Henry II needed a bathroom.

The Chapel of Thomas Becket. He became archbishop of Canterbury in 1162 and was murdered by four knights sent by the Henry II, because he refused to submit to the King. Many pilgrims from Europe travelled this route to visit Thomas Becket's grave in Canterbury.

The storage rooms

One of the Great Halls, apparently a Dining Hall.

The Great Chamber
