Members of CSSC benefit from a great range of discounted and free days out and shopping vouchers.
Originally a Tudor fortress, Walmer Castle evolved into a stately-home for the Lords Warden of the Cinque Ports, and became the residence of famous names from the Duke of Wellington to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
Inside, our exhibits and collection bring to life Wellington’s career, and the story of his life and death. You can even see the original Wellington Boots. Outside, discover new interpretation and tactile displays among eight acres of award winning gardens and woodland, telling the story of Walmer’s garden landscape as never before. After a day of exploring, relax at the new Glasshouse Café, and enjoy afternoon tea in the beautiful setting of the kitchen garden.
