We were blessed with good weather which helped walking around outside. Bob assisted by Colin were our guides in Group 1 and we were treated to a thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour. We came away from the visit knowing so much more about the nuclear power industry. If you have the time and are only mildly inquisitive then I can... More

It was a very interesting and informative tour, I learnt a great deal about nuclear power. The Guide was very well informed and able to answer all our questions. A great morning out and it's free.

Whatever your opinion on nuclear energy, this power station is worth a visit to learn more about the process, it's management and risks. Would suit boffin types as well as non-engineering folks with just a general interest.

Started off with a brief and health and safety talk, then we were kitted out in hi visability clothing and helmets. The tour takes a few hours. I am really... More

Well, that was brilliant! My wife booked a full tour of the power station about 8 weeks in advance as they only do small groups. Second only to the Kennedy space centre for geek level interesting! We went with 2 boys (13 & 10) All the staff were great, serious, informative but fun. The best bit, it's free!

We took our children 8 and 9 for the tour - they really enjoyed it and so did we. The guides Bob and Attia were really knowledgeable, encouraging questions and pitching the tour at a level that was accessible to all. Dressing up in the full PPE was really exciting, and the location of Dungeness made the tour particularly interesting... More

Really interesting and informative tour of the power station on Friday afternoon. Very friendly and helpful tour guide and a small group to go round - be aware you need to book in advance and it doesn't run at weekends
