The Western Heights Preservation Society are holding their first open weekend of the year at the Drop Redoubt on Dover's Western Heights on the 19th & 20th May 2018.

The fort is only open to the general public twice a year so come and visit this unique Napoleonic structure and fortification.

See military re-enactments, musket fire, drills and explore the Napoleonic fort at your leisure. Enjoy cakes and hot and cold drinks at our Casemate Cafe.

The Grand Shaft staircase is open all weekend and free parking is available at the sports field by the Citadel.

Admission is just £5 per adults and children go free. Head for CT17 9DZ to find us.
