Event Details

£25, morning

The Norman castle and Napoleonic citadel occupy the headlands which determined Dover’s growth along steep valley sides. Much of this growth took place in the wake of Napoleon’s exile, exemplifying the confidence of late-Georgian England. Grand terraces stand obediently along the seafront, while those running inland define the town’s northerly expansion during the reign of William IV. Dover’s Georgian buildings sit alongside examples of those of the late 19th and 20th centuries, representing styles as diverse as Edwardian Baroque, Flemish-influenced Arts and Crafts, and Fifties modernism.

Philip Hutton and Christopher Lumgair are co-authors of the recently published book ‘Dover–what we saw. The architecture of a port town’.
