Our collection of world famous contributions has been expanded this week by fulfilling an order to the new exhibition at Walmer Castle.

The castle is located in the English county of Kent and it was built by the order of king Henry VIII in mid 16th century. The castle was used as part of the chain of fortifications protecting the south coast of England, called the Cinque Ports. The impressive complex features immaculately preserved fortifications and is surrounded by a moat, complete with spectacular gardens and a draw bridge.

Throughout the history there have been many Lord Wardens including William Pitt the Younger, the Duke of Wellington, Winston Churchill and the Queen Mother – they all stayed at the castle at various times.

English Heritage is putting on an exhibition this year to celebrate the 200th year anniversary of the victory of the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo.
